We are really serious about making sure your data is as safe and secure as possible on Craftybase, so we have just increased the data security across the site to be completely encrypted via 256-bit SSL.
What is SSL? SSL stands for Secure Sockets Layer, a protocol developed to transmit private documents via the Internet. This essentially means that all traffic between our servers to your browser is now fully encoded so that it can’t be read by third parties, and is an industry gold standard way of dealing with sensitive data across the internet. You can easily identify a site that is secured in this way by examining the URL in your browser: if it appears as https:// at the start (instead of the more common http://) then it is being delivered to your browser via this extra security. Some browsers also show a little padlock icon next to the URL to indicate that they have recognised that the site is a secure one.
You probably won’t notice anything different with the site, it’ll still be quick and responsive. It’s just that if you are to visit http://craftybase.com you will be automatically switched over to https://craftybase.com - which takes an extra millisecond or so to do.
We hope that this change gives you extra peace of mind when logging in and logging your data on our site. If you have any questions at all about this change or SSL in general, please feel free to contact us - we are happy to help!
