Chrome will warn “Not secure” for all websites using HTTP

Beginning in July 2018, the Chrome web browser will display a “Not secure” warning in the address bar for all websites that are not protected by the HTTPS encryption protocol.

Specifically, with version 68 released in July, any site that does not use SSL certificates will be labeled “Not secure”. This is a strong move by Google to promote the use of HTTPS.

Previously, with Chrome version 56, websites with online payments or using a personal password for access that were not protected by the encryption protocol also issued an “unsafe” warning. To version 62, the official HTTP website has a warning note right next to the url; When the user enters information into existing form templates (such as the form for registration information); and in an incognito browser.

With Chrome version 68, there is no other exception, Google makes use of HTTPS is required. Not only Chrome, Mozilla Firefox since December 2014 has started warning all HTTP web sites are not secure.

Making this decision, the giants also rely on a variety of assessments and analyzes with the use of SSL certificates. Specifically:

68% of Chrome and Android traffic has been encrypted
78% are hits on Apple’s macOS laptops and Google’s Chrome OS
The top 81/100 sites in the world now use HTTPS

As far as we know, from March 2018, the maximum deadline for SSL Certificates will be shortened to 825 days (equivalent to 02 official term and 3 month trial) – which means that the maximum The reliability, level of updates, security and assurance of authentication will be higher.
