SSL Certificates protect your customers’ sensitive information by encrypting the data they send to you, then decrypting it once you’ve received it. A SSL certificate serves as a digital "passport" that allows data to be transmitted over secure networks - protecting financial and credit card transactions, sign ups, sensitive information, email and company intranets. It authenticates and encrypts the data transferred through the website to the server.
Most consumers are looking for the https:// prefix in their browser bar before submitting personal information like their name, credit card numbers and address to a website. A SSL Certificate is the only way to get this. You will notice the green lock/text (Secure Connection) in your browser bar vs the red text (Connection is Not Secure).
