Google Chrome To Mark All HTTP Sites As Insecure By July 2018

Google has instructed the publishers to upgrade their websites from HTTP to HTTPS by July 2018. The tech giant is keen for mass HTTPS adoption and for that it has released a deadline in a latest announcement



At present, some of the HTTP sites are by default ‘not secure’ when it is typed on an address bar. However, the next released of Chrome 68 will list all such websites as ‘not secure’ from July 2018.

The notion is to keep the web safe for everyone and developers have responded positively since last year as 68% of the Chrome traffic is now protected on both Android and Windows while whopping 78% is secured on both Chrome OS and Mac. Overall, 81 out of the top 100 sites on the web use HTTPS by default which is a strong indicator of HTTPS encryption.
