In the past month you may have noticed that your site no longer has the green padlock in the address bar at the top of your Google Chrome browser. Does this mean that your SSL security has expired? No - this is a change to the interface of Google Chrome that rolled out with the update to Chrome 69 that most likely happened on your desktop in September.
As of October 2018, Firefox is still showing a green padlock in the address bar for sites with an SSL certificate. Microsoft Edge shows a dark grey outlined padlock for sites with an SSL certificate.
