    It is important to use SSL, with so much of our day to day transactions and communications happening online. SSL supports the following information security principles:
    - Encryption: protect data transmissions;
    - Authentication: ensure the server you’re connected to is actually the correct server;
    - Data integrity: ensure that the data that is requested or submitted is what is actually delivered.

    To the best of my understanding, SSL plays a crucial role in website security and provides assurance to Google and users that the website is secure, allowing for worry-free browsing.

    Hi all!

    After discussion, it became clear that SSL security is essential for websites. Not only does it include features like push notifications, but it also has a significant impact on SEO and user trust. Google considers SSL as a ranking factor, so having an SSL certificate can increase your site's ranking in search engines. It also displays a secure connection with users, increasing their trust in your site.
    Without SSL, browsers like Chrome display warnings, which can lead to high bounce rates and affect your user experience. SSL certificates provide authentication, encryption, and data integrity, protecting sensitive information from potential threats. With the growing focus on website security, SSL is becoming standard practice.
    As such, SSL security is critical for websites, providing secure connections, boosting SEO, and building trust. If you haven't already, I recommend implementing SSL on your website to take advantage of these benefits.
    To your health.
