What does the green address bar do?  Print this Article

The green address bar is a quick and intuitive way to ensure visitors to your site that your business is legitimate and safe. The green bar is only available with Extended Validation (EV) Certificates. Major web browsers, including Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox, have integrated anti-phishing protection so that known phishing sites will display a red address bar, whereas sites secured with an EV SSL will display a green address bar – letting visitors know that your business is good to go! Studies have shown a strong, positive impact for businesses that adopt EV SSL – for more information, contact our Sales Department.
