After a number of scandals related to dodgy SSL certificates, Google decided in March 2017 to take measures against Symantec and its brands Thawte, GeoTrust and RapidSSL. Google’s initial proposal included many limitations, for example removing ‘trust’ in existing Symantec certificates from the Chrome browser, showing Symantec EV certificates as domain validation certificates without a company name and green address bar, and limiting certificate validity to 9 months. After long discussions on the Chrome mailing list, a new proposal defined revised, less disruptive measures. Still, Google states that starting 31 August 2017, Chrome may gradually begin mistrusting Symantec, GeoTrust, Thawte and RapidSSL branded certificates that were issued before 1 June 2016.

If you’ve sent us a support request in recent weeks, there’s a high probability that you got in contact with Simon, the newest member of our web operations team. He joined us in December 2016 and has already contributed an impressive level of work. Over on our company blog, we’ve just posted an interview with Simon in which he shares his professional background and what attracted him to the freistil way of “Hosting by Humans”. His description of our company culture makes us really proud!

I’m sure he’d love it to get a shout out from you, so go and say Hello!
