Chrome is going to stop telling you if a website is “Secure”.
Google’s browser will also begin to flash warnings about HTTP websites
Upcoming versions of Google’s Chrome will kill off some of browser’s security signposting, with HTTPS sites no longer marked as “secure” in the address bar.
In a blogpost, Chrome security product manager Emily Schechter announced that Chrome 69, which is due to roll out in September, will change the way it flags up the security of websites. Currently, Chrome displays a small padlock icon and the word “Secure” to the left of a website’s URL. With the update, Chrome will only signpost if a site is “Not secure”.
