Why do I need a Facebook certificate?

Since 1 October 2011, Facebook has required a trustworthy SSL certificate for every external site and application. The reason for the change, according to the operator, is the effort to achieve a better security of user data andreduce the amount of hacked account passwords.
An SSL certificate is also necessary if you are a business person and have your own Facebook Business page loading external content.
All links on the page must be adapted and use the secured SSL protocol (https:// instead of http:// ).

The changes apply for all Facebook applications and the following Facebook website parts:

  • Landing Pages
  • Facebook e-shops
  • Facebook competitions
  • Any applications and websites which, after loading the content, use IFRAME
