Google Chrome will warn users if websites are not secure

Google Chrome will warn users if websites are not secure

The world's favourite web browser, Google Chrome will be receiving a new update in July this year and with the update comes a new feature to highlight potentially risky websites. These date shows the protected websites on the Google Chrome.

"Chrome's new interface will help users understand that all HTTP sites are not secure, and continue to move the web toward a secure HTTPS web by default", the company says in a statement.

The company's decision comes after HTTPS adoption increased among website owners and a large chunk of today's traffic is now encrypted. Google will mark all such websites with not secure label at the address bar. If you are not aware about protecting your website, you can follow the official setup guidelines offered by Google for your website.

"Based on the awesome rate that sites have been migrating to HTTPS and the strong trajectory through this year, we think that in July the balance will be tipped enough so that we can mark all HTTP sites", Chrome security product manager Emily Schechter said in a blog post.




Google has been updating the Google Chrome browser to secure their users.

If you're one of the 56 percent of users who prefer the Chrome browser over other options, then it's likely that you'll be seeing notifications for websites not using the HTTPS protocol starting in July. Developers have made great strides in transitioning their sites to HTTPS and 81 of the top 100 sites on the web are now using HTTPS by default. Similarly, more than 78 percent of Chrome traffic on Chrome OS and macOS is now protected.

The encryption keeps malicious actors away from messing with web pages - for example, inserting ads or altering websites to send you to a bogus sign-in page. The "S" means the connection is "secure" and that any communication between you and the website is encrypted and less prone to attack. We could expect the same time period of this feature by Mozilla Firefox.
