Chrome’s plan for the Insecure HTTP Sites

Chrome currently does not truly reflect the lack of security for HTTP connections. Although there is a higher transition from HTTP to HTTPS sites, users seem to take their security for granted. Web Security

With hacking at an all time high, Google has set out on a mission to make Chrome one of the safest platform for users. The company’s ultimate goal is to warn users of the insecurities on HTTP sites and make them more aware of this looming issue.

Google hopes to eventually be able to warn users and label HTTP sites that transmit password or credit card details. Chrome will also begin displaying a new warning on login pages that aren’t encrypted, which will be labeled with a red triangle. They are aware that warning users too often of security issues may cause them to become blind to these notifications so Google hopes to warn users in a friendly yet effective way.
