Chrome to begin labeling non-HTTPS websites as "Not secure"
Wednesday, February 28, 2018Starting in July 2018, the Chrome browser will begin labeling sites that do not use HTTPS as "Not secure". This represents a significant change and many more people will encounter these Chrome warnings as a result. (Previously, Chrome only showed this indicator after someone entered text into a form on HTTP-only pages.)
The image below, taken from the Chrome team’s blog announcement posted last week, illustrates the upcoming change:
Chrome has approximately 60% of the market share today across desktop and mobile, so sites without HTTPS should rightfully be concerned with how their users will perceive the "Not secure" indicator.
If you currently rely on the entry of text into HTTP-only by your end users you should upgrade to https before Chrome puts this change in place.
