To be very frank use the color that best fits your website and it doesn’t have to be orange or green but make sure you pick contrasting/bright colors.

A secure website is what visitors want and to identify a secure website look for the ones that have the “s” at the end of the http or a padlock next to it when you do your next search.
Https means the website you are visiting has an SSL (Secure Socket layer) certificate and in simple terms it means that the website is secure and encrypted. So, you can be at peace of mind when you share any information on that website.

Tip #6: Optimize submission form
Your website may include a request a quote page or contact us page and for either of the forms it is best advised to ask as fewer questions as possible but make sure that the information you collect is important. The user prefers it to be simple and straight forward and might not feel safe to share every single detail about themselves.
Complex and frustrating submission forms cause a negative experience for the user. Keep it simple, only ask for information that you really need and have the fields set in a logical way and what is most important.
