Google Chrome to mark all HTTP websites as 'not secure'

24 July 2018 6

Almost two years back we shared how Google would be updating Google Chrome to show a Omni prompt next to the URL of a website that requires user authentication and that utilizes HTTP protocol for user authentication. Previously, HTTPS (that is the advance and secure protocol) was mostly used by corporate websites and on sites that had sensitive data though now as per the upcoming Google Chrome update, all sites that would be running HTTP for any purpose would be marked as ‘Not Secure’ and the user would be prompted for that.


This is the attempt from the tech giant to promote the much secure HTTPS protocol to make its widespread user over the internet. The new update would be seen in Chrome 68 that would be released tomorrow on the desktop platform. Currently, the same prompt is shown on websites with data entry or user authentication fields as mentioned earlier.

HTTPS protocol ensures that the connection setup between the user and the website is secure which won’t allow any middleman, hacker or ISP or government to tamper your information. Other features like notifications (that work on Service Workers) won’t function on HTTP powered websites and would be blocked on such insecure connections.

The same message would also be shown on the websites with improper HTTPS configuration. What do you think about this? Share your views in the comment section below.
