How it works
An SSL creates a secure tunnel through which information including usernames, passwords, credit card numbers and more can pass safely.
First, the SSL “handshake”
When a website visitor enters an SSL-protected area of your website, your SSL certificate automatically creates an encrypted connection with the visitor’s browser.
The padlock icon appears
Once the connection is complete, a padlock icon and HTTPS prefix appear in the visitor’s browser bar to show them they’re safe to share personal details. If you have a high-assurance EV Certificate, your visitor’s status bar will also turn green.
You’re good to go
All information passing to and from your website is now scrambled by 2048-bit encryption that’s virtually unbreakable by hackers.
