Watch for upcoming security changes

No one wants their website hacked, am I right?

 

However, I do wish the techies looking down from cyberspace would stop monkeying around and tweaking every little thing on the internet.

Just when I believe I’ve gotten everything under control, bam! Time to relearn and figure out just what the hell is changing now.

A big thanks to Nicholas C. Rossis for keeping me and everyone up to date on the coming changes to Google Chrome. Apparently, it has something to do with website security. OMG

Now you may say, “I don’t use Google Chrome.” But where Google goes other search engines are soon to follow. So take note, read the article and watch for changes.

So, what is this Google Chrome update all about?

  • Google Chrome has an update coming out the end of July. Chrome 68.
  • The new update will mark ALL websites an “not secure.”
  •  Some hosting websites will add additional Security Socket Layer–or SSL for us, some may not.
  • If the website host doesn’t add the additional SSL, we will need to add one ourselves to make sure communications between our site and a visitor is secure.

Think I got all that right. Sure hope WordPress.com adds it for me. Hate when I have to figure all this shit out for myself.

  1. Many thanks for sharing! I’m so glad my post inspired you 🙂

    WordPress has already installed SSL on our wordpress.com blogs. So this only impacts self-hosted authors. Also, I notice that you have already installed SSL on jeanswriting.com, so you’re good to go 🙂
