Google Chrome is making helpful changes to make web browsing safer
Starting in July of 2018, Google Chrome will be marking all sites that haven’t adopted HTTPS encryption as “not secure.”
For several years, Google has strongly pushed for sites to adopt the HTTPS encryption, but they’re not waiting any longer. When Chrome 68 is released in July of this year, all HTTP sites will state “not secure” in the omnibox.
A majority of web developers have already transitioned their sites to HTTPS and are already helping to make the web safer for everyone.
As per Google’s records; over 68% of Chrome traffic on Android and Windows is protected, and over 78% of Chrome traffic on Chrome OS and Mac is protected.
Overall, this is great news for users in the fight for safety and security on the internet.
