Wordpress: what if my website has no Transportencryption (https) working?

Recommended Posts

hello dear php-experts,

what if my (wordpress-) website has no Transportencryption (https) working.

in other words is it so that in this case i am transmitting credentials unencrypted through the wire!?

does this affect any law or gdpr issue (law)?!

Love to hear from you

Yes and potentially yes.

hello dear Requinix 


many thanks for the quick reply glad to hear from you .


well - i encountered this on a site which is a beta-beta-beta site: but i am willing to fulfill all the GDPR-things. So i have to take care of the correct way and that Transportencryption (https) is  working propperly.

And i am pretty sure requinix that you are right - in every sight!  

I can say that I can't imagine there are many users that would willingly enter any account credentials on an unencrypted page at this point in time.
btw: as for some fixes in that sort of thing: can we fix the https (there are free certificates one can use like zerossl.com/free-ssl/ for example) and furthermore - what about to look into a simple free gdpr/cookie consent script like eg here www.freeprivacypolicy.com/cookie-consent/ above all: i will make sure that the GDBR authorities will be able to go even on my small website that for any reason - if they are interested in GDBR-Things. like

- logging user data (like requiring visitors to login,

- or any kind of cookie tracking).

Above all: many thanks dear requinix for the reply.  I will take care - and above all - i will set up the whole server new.. so that all of these things will be correct. 


regards ;)
