In July 2018, a new version of Google Chrome will be released with a serious change.
The browser developer has long gone to this and now in the new version, announced for June of this year, all HTTP resources will be marked as unsafe. This tag will look like this:
This policy is not new for the company, because over the past years, experts have been agitating service owners to work on HTTPS. The manual explains this by saying that this focus is primarily related to security in the network. This behavior of Google reflected for the better:
- More than 68% of the traffic of the browser installed on the Android OS and Windows is safe.
- For Mac, the figure is 78%.
- According to the latest data from a hundred sites over 80 on the Internet now use the HTTPS protocol by default.
The situation with HTTP sites that will happen this summer was announced in the fall of 2016. And in January of last year, the browser began to mark in a similar way HTTP pages that have forms for entering credit card information, logins, passwords, etc. Prior to this, in October, any pages on this protocol, visited in incognito mode, were noted.
