Chrome Starts Telling Users HTTP Sites Are Not Secure

Since mid-winter Google planned to come out and make a statement and confirm brand non-HTTPS sites as “Not Secure,” and today, with Chrome 68, that change is being rolled out to a wide audience. Should this impact your normal, daily interent usage. Probably not. Most major website and shopping sites already have dealt with the non-secure issue. There is a difference between http and https. A lot of times when you switch over to enter personal information the website switches over automatically anyways.

Key Takeaways:

  • Instead of the small “i” icon for HTTP URLs, Chrome will add a “Not secure” label of text to that.
  • Chrome will mark all plain HTTP sites as “not secure.” Google has given webmasters and publishers six months’ notice of this upcoming change, and it is now going live tomorrow.
  • Depending upon the size of a site and scope of the project, a migration from HTTP to HTTPS can be quite an undertaking.
