Google Chrome To Start Marking HTTP Sites As ‘Not Secure’ From July

Starting from July 2018, Google's own Chrome browser will start labeling non HTTP sites as ‘not secure’. This was announced by Google how said the aim was to make browsing more secure and safe for users. The company started that over 68% of Chrome traffic on both Android and Windows, over 78% Chrome traffic on both Chrome OS and Mac and 81 of the top 100 sites on the web use HTTPS by default and are now protected.

Google believes that HTTPS is easier and cheaper than ever before, and it boots both performance improvements and powerful new features that are too sensitive for HTTP. With the availability of free SSL/TLS certificates and even browsers started encouraging the shift, Google for sometime now has started using this as a ranking factor for sites.

The company noted that Chrome is dedicated to making it easy to setup HTTP sites to migrate to HTTPS.
