Question about Self-Signed Certificates
I just installed a self-signed certificate intending to use it to make an app on my site https-only.
However I noticed that when I navigate to that app:
1. The browser complains (presumably because the certificate is self-signed).
2. If the browser ends up letting me through it typically shows "Not Secure" on the left side of the URL bar.
So I'm wondering:
1. Is it always this way with self-signed certificates?
2. Can I assume that I really am connected via SSH and that the "Not Secure" simply refers to the fact that the Certificate is Self-signed?
3. Is it the case that the only way to eliminate this "Not Secure" warning is to pay for a commercially-available Certificate with a Chain of Trust?
Thanks for the help.
2. Your browser could probably make an exception, but…
3. You should look into this wonderful thing called Let's Encrypt.
