Last Updated:Jun 04, 2021


This article describes the impacts if you do not renew your SSL certificate in time after it expires.


If an SSL certificate expires and is not renewed in time, the following impacts may occur:

  • When a user visits a website, an alert is generated, indicating that the security certificate for the website has expired.
  • If a user receives this alert, the user may lose trust in the website and even choose to stop visiting the website. This adversely affects the brand image and user loyalty of an enterprise.
  • Malicious users, such as attackers, may exploit expired SSL certificates to tamper with or steal the information and data transmitted between browsers and servers. This affects data security.
