Google Announces Change To HTTPS Label

Tuesday, 9th October 2018

Google is making changes to how it lets users know whether the site they're on is secure or not.

Google will be implementing a change to its Chrome browser v.69 from September, in which they’ll be removing the ‘Secure’ label on all HTTPS site.

This forms part of a larger-scale change that will see the search engine giant flagging non-secure sites from October 2018, by displaying a red ‘not secure’ warning when users enter data on HTTP web pages.

The change comes on the back of a shift in momentum which has seen enough sites move over to HTTPS to warrant the change from Google.
