http to https?

Greetings, Drupal community.

So I received an email from Google saying the following:

“Starting October 2017, Chrome (version 62) will show a “NOT SECURE” warning when users enter text in a form on an HTTP page, and for all HTTP pages in Incognito mode.

The following URLs on your site include text input fields (such as < input type=”text” > or < input type=”email” >) that will trigger the new Chrome warning. Review these examples to see where these warnings will appear, so that you can take action to help protect users’ data. This list is not exhaustive.”


As a very novice Drupaler (more Content Manager than developer) – is this a valid concern? Our website is linked to a membership database/SSN system where our members or potential members are able to donate/register for a convention/renew membership/etc. and we’re worried that a message of the site being “NOT SECURE” will negatively impact the user’s trust of our sites.

If this is a valid concern, how would I go about changing our websites from http:// to https:// …? I sincerely appreciate ANY insight you all have!
