Google’s Chrome browser set to make the web more secure

You may have noticed that when you go to our website, afas.org.au, you are actually taken to https://afas.org.au

This means that our website is a more secure site.

The version of Google Chrome that will be released to the wider public in July will include a feature that gives strong preference to sites that incorporate a level of security directly into their sites, using the HTTPS protocol.

So, what does this mean to AFAS members?

As our site is running with HTTPS, it will mean we will conform to Google’s preferences for secure sites, and will not be sending away people who may be concerned when the site is shown as insecure.
