If you have your Joomla site using an SSL Certificate but someone links to the HTTP version of your site (or they enter in the HTTP url of your site to visit it), modern browsers will display a "Not secure" flag to your visitors unless you force that traffic through the HTTPS version of your site. How to force site access through only HTTPS is what today's Maintenance Monday is all about.
