Recently Google has been encouraging “website owners to switch from HTTP to HTTPS to keep everyone safe on the web.” As an incentive, sites using propper SSL encryption will get a slight search result ranking boost.
The primary reason why SSL is used is to keep sensitive information sent across the Internet encrypted so that only the intended recipient can understand it. The information you send on the Internet is sent through multiple computers to get to the intended destination. Any computer in between you and the intended destination can see the information you are sending if it is not encrypted with an SSL certificate. When an SSL certificate is used, the information becomes unreadable to everyone except for the destination you are sending the information to. This protects it from hackers and identity thieves.
While WebUnraveling.com does not transfer sensitive information it is still important to use SSL. The site has been encrypted with SSL because internet security is important. We want to leave our guard up at all times.
