Imminent: Non-HTTPS Sites Labeled “Not Secure” by Chrome

On approximately January 31st of this month, version 56 of the Chrome web browser will be released. There is a significant change in the way it displays websites that are not using HTTPS, also known as SSL. This change may confuse your site visitors or surprise you if you are not expecting it.

Starting with the release of Chrome 56 this month, any website that is not running HTTPS will have a message appear in the location bar that says “Not Secure” on pages that collect passwords or credit cards.

  1. The differences in what you see in your browser’s address bar are quite important to the security of the data you are sending and receiving while connected to a website. If you’re not aware of how secure your connection to a website is, you are running the risk of having your valuable personal and business information stolen by the bad guys.

    In this article, I’ll explain what an SSL certificate is, and why seeing that extra “S” in your favourite website’s address is a good thing. I’ll also share how you can protect any websites you own by installing an SSL certificate to protect your readers, just as Pixel Privacy does. Look up in the address bar, and you’ll see that beautiful green padlock, assuring you that your connection to my website is secure.
