Google’s Chrome will soon start warning you more about HTTP pages

A Google effort to push websites to implement encryption is expanding. Starting in October, the company will roll out new warnings to flag HTTP connections as insecure in its Chrome browser.

For users, it means Chrome will display the words “not secure” in the browser’s address bar whenever they type any data into web pages that connect over HTTP.

However, for users who like to browse through Chrome’s privacy-enhancing Incognito mode, the warnings will appear by default on all HTTP pages visited, not only when the user enters information onto the page.

“Eventually, we plan to show the ‘not secure’ warning for all HTTP pages, even outside Incognito mode,” Google said in a blog post on Thursday.
