This is a real problem, it scares people away. How DO we get rid of this warning? I don't even take payments on mys site, but this warning makes us look very dodgy...

For whatever reason, the editor itself is not a secure site, but if you are building with Website Builder within the last year, new sites are automatically secure.  If you have an older site and didn't "secure" it yourself with Cloudflare, you can have the Homestead support secure your site from the other end.  Call them at 800-710-1998 to help you.

Hello Roger,

I can see where the concern may be with the editor not showing secure. There has been conversation about securing the editor and it may be in the future but I cannot guarantee. The editor is not processing any personal information so there is not an urgent requirement for it. However, I do want to assure you that none of your customers will see this page as it will only be when you are making edits. The live website will show secure for the customer. 


I noticed you are using Sitebuilder plus for most of your websites, if you would like to add a SSL to those domains here are instructions to proceed with doing so.
The WebsiteBuilder sites that are in the new software will automatically be secured.
