But, I really need this? The pages like account information will are not secured without SSL? I thought that PrestaShop had a internal security.

Hello guialro, and thanks for your comment,
This article explains how to enable a SSL certificate for your PrestaShop website. For more information you might be interested in reading our article on what is SSL and why is it important.
PrestaShop does have internal security, however in general information submitted to any website is going to be over clear plain-text channels. Forcing certain sections of your website that transmit sensitive data like credit card numbers or personal information to be over a SSL connection can help ensure that information is secure from prying eyes.
