How Can I Check Whether My Website Is Secure?

Well, if you’ve never heard of HTTPS and you’re quite certain that your website doesn’t have it, then it’s likely that your website isn’t secure. However, if you literally have no idea, then there are a few simple ways to check whether your website is secure or not...
1

2

Add HTTPS Before Your Domain Name

Another really simple method of checking whether your website is secure or not is by adding HTTPS before your domain name when you input this into the address bar of your browser. For example, rather than using http://www.switchtohttps.com, you should try https://www.switchtohttps.com instead. If your browser cannot connect to the HTTPS version, then it’s likely that your website is not secure.

Check for the Padlock

If your website is secure, then to the left of the address bar at the top of your browser window pane you’ll see a padlock with ‘Secure’ next to it that indicates the site uses HTTPS as default.
