We take security very seriously at mumoActive. We handle your health data, and that needs to be very carefully protected. You need to be able to trust that your information is in safe hands.

It’s our mission to take good care of your data, because mumoActive is your tool.

We already use the best security methods in our iOS, Android, and Web apps to keep you secure when you’re using our services. But, we decided to go the extra mile and make our entire online presence secure as well.

As soon as you go to our website, mumoactive.com, you will see a padlock in your browser window. This means that you are looking at an encrypted website using SSL (Secure Sockets Layer). What you are looking at and doing cannot be spied on by untoward individuals.

Even this blog post is secure. Take a look at your address bar, above.

The padlock symbol also allows you to know that you are on our trusted website. It says: we’ve got your back.

We didn’t have to do this. Our website is only displaying information about our services. But, we knew it was the right thing to do. Your entire journey through our website and apps is now completely secure.

I think you’ll agree that’s awesome.

Personally, I have come to be reassured by any website that uses HTTPS. We are very happy to be among those websites who have chosen to protect their users’ privacy through the implementation of SSL across their entire online presence.

Here’s to a more secure Internet.

The Experience of Implementing SSL

For those of you reading this that run a website and are thinking about bringing SSL to your site, we found the experience to be pretty smooth. There is a serious risk of issues, and we do recommend backing up your site and using a test platform.

We purchased a certificate to ensure we had the best SSL validity. They are very affordable and simple to install. There’s almost no point going for a free certificate. Whilst free SSL certificates, apparently, are just as secure as a paid one, you will be giving your users and readers some alarming warnings.

We used the Really-Simple-SSL plugin on our CMS to make all of the necessary changes to automatically redirect visitors to HTTPS and to ensure all of our content was running HTTPS only. Again, mixed content throws up scary warnings – which nobody wants to see.

Just in case the website went down, we donned our tin-foil hats and eye goggles in case we needed to roll things back. We had backups ready, and a handy kill script for the SSL plugin in case there were any conflicts generated by it.

Luckily, though, it all worked out fine. What were we worrying about?

At the end of the day, it was worth the sweat patches of fear to bring this additional security to our customers.

Let us know in the comments how the use of SSL makes you feel more secure.
