    Lets Encrypt do not have the insurance that paid ones do, but are much faster and easier to setup. I love Lets Encrypt, a fantastic service to the web hosting industy :)

    For those wondering where green padlock went to:

    Starting with Chrome 69 (released September 2018) Chrome no longer makes padlock green when page is secure. This is to desensitize users about this UI item. Next on menu is that Chrome will warn users away from sites that aren't https.

    Question; this "insurance" what does it cover and how. Spoilers; this is something of a rabbit hole and the answer ends up being the "insurance" is completely worthless.
