Google’s security blog recently published an update that explains more about the HTTPS changes that Google is making in an attempt to make the internet more secure and safer to use.
What you will see:
When you start interacting with webpages (Such as filling out a form), the URL bar will have a small pop-up that says “Not Secure”.
You can read the whole post here.
In short, Google has not only started favoring websites with HTTPS on their search engine but now with their web browser. If you want to make sure that your customers aren’t interrupted with any messages while they are using your website, we would encourage you to look at getting yourself an SSL certificate.
In an effort to share this information with more people, you may have been getting emails from Google through their search console alerting you about the changes that are upcoming.
We believe that Google will eventually show a larger and louder warning to all Chrome users.
Here is a video about HTTPS produced at a Conference hosted by Google.
