Google Further Pushes HTTPS by Marking Websites as "Not Secure"

Starting in July of this year, Chrome browser will start noting that sites that do not use Secure Socket Layer encryption as being "Not Secure." Of course that does not mean you are not visiting a malicious website, but HTTP encryption is a big step in the security direction. Google also has new sets of tools to help website admins migrate to HTTPS.

For the past several years, we’ve moved toward a more secure web by strongly advocating that sites adopt HTTPS encryption. And within the last year, we’ve also helped users understand that HTTP sites are not secure by gradually marking a larger subset of HTTP pages as "not secure". Beginning in July 2018 with the release of Chrome 68, Chrome will mark all HTTP sites as "not secure".
