Reasons to use SSL
Non-SSL pages can be denied access by the browser.
The blocking measure was initiated by a security feature officially introduced in the Chrome and Firefox browsers.
SSL is a technology for encrypting user data.
By encrypting data, a website can be viewed safely without a third party being able to read the information.
When a website is SSL-enabled, the prefix of the website URL changes from 'http' to 'https'.
Ensuring that all pages of a website are SSL-enabled is referred to as 'Always-On SSL'.
