SSL encryption is an important layer of security we use on all community websites. To help keep residents and visitors safe, we will automatically redirect all visitors to our SSL encrypted community website pages. You can verify that your website is encrypted with SSL by checking if the URL contains "https://" instead of "http://" (note the 's').
What exactly is SSL good for anyway? It encrypts all communications between the user and HOA Express servers. This primarily protects users against having private information stolen via what's known as a "man-in-the-middle" attack. These types of attacks can occur at public WiFi hotspots, among other situations. But not to worry, your data and your residents are protected from this type of attack on our community websites. SSL can also prevent against other attacks and helps with other security concerns, but those start to get fairly technical.
