Limits to free Let's Encrypt SSL certificates
A free Let's Encrypt certificate guarantees the same level of encryption as an EV or DV certificate. However, Let's Encrypt certificates unfortunately do not offer the following advantages:
- Your company name in the navigation bar (EV)
- Manual validation of the details and authenticity of your company (EV)
- Guarantee for end users in case of fraud (EV/DV)
- Support in case of questions
In short, Let's Encrypt certificates ensure the encryption of your exchanges between your users and your site, but they do not provide a guarantee to internet users that they are on a legitimate website whose identity has been authorised by a certification body.
