Google Now Highlighting Insecure Web Sites
Google is now calling out web sites that don’t use https for security. Google announced in February that Chrome 68 would begin highlighting insecure sites. Now that Chrome 68 is rolling out to all users, the web browser is proactively labelling web sites that don't make use of https encryption. The end goal is to encourage web developers to add https to their web sites, which will improve security for everyone. Https traffic is encrypted to protect against prying eyes, while http traffic is not encrypted. According to Google, over 76% of Chrome traffic on Android is now protected, while over 86% of Chrome traffic on Chrome OS is now protected. Fully 83 of the top 100 sites on the web use https by default. Google said it will adjust Chrome's user interface so users understand which sites are insecure and why they are insecure. Google says it has simplified its set-up guides to help web developers secure their sites with https.
