Google Chrome and SSL Certificates – Take Note
Replace Your SSL/TLS Certs by Symantec, Thawte, VeriSign, Equifax, GeoTrust and RapidSSL.
Google’s Chrome browser is in the process of ending support for Symantec SSL/TLS certificates. This applies to companies owned by Symantec too.
Chrome’s early ‘canary’ release has already ended support for these certificates and the beta and production versions are being released during the next month, completing the end of support for Symantec certificates.
If you are running one of these certificates on your website, visitors using Chrome will start receiving a nasty error if you don’t take action very soon.
On our blog, we describe which certificates are affected, what the important dates are and how to easily check if your certificate is affected.
