When to use SSL certificates?
Using an SSL certificate protects your and your customers’ sensitive information. It prevents third parties from snooping the transmitted data.
To encrypt data: on the Internet information is passed from computer to computer to get to the destination server. Any computer in between you and the server can see your credit card numbers, usernames and passwords, and other sensitive information if it is not encrypted with an SSL certificate.
To authenticate: In addition to encryption, a proper SSL certificate also provides authentication. This means you can be sure that you are sending information to the right server and not to a third party’s server.
