Shopify has set up FREE 256-bit SSL certificates for all pages, content, and data on all eligible Shopify sites! SSL is industry standard security technology for establishing an encrypted link between a web server and a web browser, ensuring that the data that passes between them remains private. SSL changes the URLs on your site from “HTTP” to “HTTPS”. For example, if your store’s URL is http://www.boutique.com, it will be updated to https://www.boutique.com after you activate SSL certificates.

Just so you know, SSL certificates are already activated by default in Shopify for your store’s checkout, and for any content that’s hosted on your .myshopify.com domain. The new change we’re announcing here is that SSL is now available site-wide.
