October 21, 2017 Upcoming Chrome SSL Change
You may have recently become aware of an update to the Google Chrome web browser regarding a warning being displayed in the address bar for sites that are not secured via an SSL certificate.

Beginning in October 2017, Google Chrome will begin marking HTTP pages as "NOT SECURE" if it detects any forms on the page that transmit input fields that the browser deems are in need of HTTPS protection. Initially, this was limited to credit card and password fields, but the list of applicable fields is increasing to include text and email input types. The HTTPS protocol and SSL certificates use encryption to protect information submitted by the user or content shown to the user.

While your site / form functionality will continue to work, if an SSL certificate is not installed, site visitors using Google Chrome as their browser will see a "Not Secure" warning in their address bar. Some site visitors may find this concerning and may choose to not submit the form in question if they feel their security / privacy is at risk.

To ensure compliance with this upcoming change, simply contact our support group (either by email at or by phone at 1 888 227-9092) and request that we add an SSL certificate to your site and we'll be more than happy to take care of the update for you.
