It’s not an unknown fact that security issues are becoming more and more of an issue these days. We live in a world that is completely connected to everything. Our computers, tablets, and phones are connected to services like Google, Facebook, Dropbox, and more! Most people believe that there is no harm in using these free services – but free does not come without a cost…
Most people do not realize the inherent nature of all the information that is shared around while you are browsing. How? Well mainly it is done through a browser cookie, which is a piece of information that is coded to make a reference to your identity!
It’s also not that easy to simply just block these cookies, because then some online tools might stop working properly. Meaning that they might stop you from logging in and demand that you enable cookies again :/
If you haven’t already heard Google Search has announced that it will now prioritize mobile-friendly search results on mobile searches over other results. This means that if Google has detected that your website is not mobile friendly then your sites search results end up at the bottom of the pile in comparison to other results. Tragically, this also means reaching less people who are using tablet or mobile devices.
If you haven’t already heard you should! Let’s Encrypt is building a new open, transparent, and completely free certificate authority service. This new service is completely backed by some major players such as the Linux Foundation, Cisco, and more. If you think that this doesn’t effect you it could actually save you a great deal!
