Google raises the security bar for websites

Chrome will start marking all HTTP sites as not secure in July Upcoming Chrome update will label HTTP sites 'not secure'

If you are completely unaware about this, Google is also offering a complete setup guide which will show you the importance of encryption and why HTTP is not secure in the current technology era.

At that point, Chrome will label all websites that use unencrypted HTTP connections as "Not secure" via a pop up on the left side of the web address bar, no matter the circumstance.

The move is part of a long-standing effort by Google to get websites everywhere to use encryption to better protect Internet communications and transactions against snooping, man-in-the-middle and other attacks. Developers have made great strides in transitioning their sites to HTTPS and 81 of the top 100 sites on the web are now using HTTPS by default. They have blocked down such websites with not secure mark.

Google first announced its plans for the transition in September 2016.

In version 62, the warning was expanded to when users enter any data on an HTTP page, as well as on all HTTP pages in Incognito mode due to an increased expectation of privacy.

Google has to come up with this decision as nowadays, most of the websites owners are adopting the HTTPs to run their websites and for that reason, Google is limiting the usages of this service on the websites which still runs through HTTP. "Progress a year ago was incredible, and it's continued since then", Schechter said.

As a result of those efforts, 68 percent of Chrome traffic on Windows and Android systems is now protected with HTTPS, Schecter said.

According to the product manager, Google has been trying to make it easier for organizations to implement HTTPS. To keep things moving in right direction, Google's open-source Lighthouse tool now has an audit feature that lets developers see which resources are being loaded with HTTP and which of those can be simply upgraded to HTTPS. In Chrome 68, the omnibox will display the "not secure" message for all HTTP pages.
