​Google is Prepared to mark “not secure” to all the Websites with HTTP Connection

Google has now issued a warning to all those websites which are having a login form on an HTTP URL. The search giant is now going to mark those websites as not secured from January onwards. To avoid security warnings in Chrome 56 such websites should move to an HTTPS URL. Google has started sharing this warning to the website owners through Google Search Console. Google posted this on Google+ also, “From the end of January with Chrome 56, Chrome will mark HTTP sites that collect passwords or credit cards as non-secure.Enabling HTTPS on your whole site is important, but if your site collects passwords, payment info, or any other personal information, it's critical to use HTTPS. Without HTTPS, bad actors can steal this confidential data. #NoHacked” Currently, Chrome doesn’t give any specific sign of “unsecured” for HTTP connections. But starting from January 2017, Chrome 56 will start showing specific sign “not secure” to HTTP connections.

Incognito mode will also show those websites as unsecured to provide the user a sense of satisfaction while browsing. Also, Google has planned to name all the HTTP pages as “not secure” and change the HTTP security indicator as a red triangle. Source: Google Security Blog
