Google to Remove HTTPS Indicator in Chrome. The Google previously announced that it would start displaying “not secure” labels to HTTP sites back in February. Google shows the secure tag for sites with “HTTPS” in its address bar so to make users feel that the web is secure by default and needs no indication.
Google to Remove HTTPS Indicator in Chrome:
Google intends to warn users when there’s an issue, meaning that the default unmarked state is secure. Google is marching towards removing Chrome’s positive security indicators.
Chrome Security Product Manager says since the HTTPS traffic evolved it is not required to draw user attention with security indicators, the default unmarked state is the secured one.
Chrome will roll this out over time; it will start by removing the “Secure” wording and HTTPS scheme with Google Chrome 69 that will roll out in September 2018.
- Google Chrome will remove the green “Secure” badge.
- This change will debut on Chrome 69 in September.
- Instead of the “Secure” badge, a gray lock icon will show.
- The ultimate goal, however, is the to remove any particular indication for HTTPS sites completely. With Chrome 70 that will come in October, Google will start showing the red “Not secure” warning when users enter data on HTTP pages.
