Google’s Chrome to Flag All HTTP Pages as ‘Not Secure’

Google will take its efforts to shame website owners into encrypting their traffic up another notch this July with the release of Chrome 68.

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 problem with HTTP is that any data the web page transmits can be potentially spied on, which could expose passwords or credit card information. As a result, Google has been pushing websites to embrace HTTPS encrypted connections.
