An EV SSL or Extended Validation SSL Certificate is the top of the line form of SSL Certificate. Although all SSL – Domain Validated (DV), Organization Validated (OV), and Extended Validation (EV) – offers data integrity, and encryption, the way identity is verified and how the certificates are displayed in the browser varies.
The biggest problem today for online business and legitimate websites is Phishing, commonly known as imposter websites. Just look at how Phisers used a fake Singapore Police Force website in June 2017 to scam citizens into giving their credit card and bank account details. Recently they have also started using DV SSL certificates (usually obtained from free SSL services) to make their website look trustworthy. The problem has been growing, a website visitor needs to be assured that the indentity of a business they are dealing with is real, so they can feel safer doing online transactions.
EV SSL solves this problem by displaying the website's owner verified identity in the browser's address bar.
