Why you should secure a website with TLS?
Insecure communication between you and a website is dangerous. Here is few real stories:
Stolen before even bought
Imagine, you want to buy some goods from an unsecured online store.
- You put some goods in the shopping cart - since there connection between you and the server is not secured - hacker (and it can be just an automatic robot) can see in the communication that you are going to buy a nice new smartphone.
- Hacker doesn't have to steal your password - he will modify your order by changing your delivery address, injecting new address in your communication without your attention. It is even possible to show you in your order recapitulation your correct address, while saving the fake one in the order.
- You will pay for your goods, either by credit card or any other payment method. Once you have paid, the order is send to the fake address. Order is paid, but your goods never arrived - they have actually arrived to the incorrect address.
This is only one and very simple demonstration how can someone modify your communication. Remember, when connection is not secure anyone can modify and read your data.
Password or not
Do you have strong password? You can have it, but it does not matter, if anyone can read it, while you typing in, if your connection is not secured.
Are you sending sensitive business or private communication by email? Sending email on insecure connection is like sending a postcard. Everyone can read it.
Work for your hacker
Have you ever heard about mining cryptocurrencies in your web browser without your knowledge? It is possible to inject this code to any web page you visiting, while you are on insecure connection.
There is a lot of different kinds of possible problems due using of insecure communication. All of them can be easily solved by securing the connection.
Securing the website is very important, as after july 2018 every insecure website will be market as insecure in Chrome browser and display warning while visiting the website.
