    the green padlock seems to be used for all secure connections now and is no longer related to ev certs in particular - our description doesn't seem to properly reflect that (& also talks about a grey padlock that is no longer used)...

    Thanks for revising and flagging this, Alice and Philipp. I agree that the green padlock section looks strange and a little thin.

    I've added a little bit more detail about the difference between green padlock icon and the green padlock icon with the org name. I've also removed the grey padlock mention. The green padlock with the organization name replaces the grey padlock.
