Google Chrome: from July all HTTP websites will be reported as unsafe

19/02/2018

Google has always been very attentive to issues related to the world of IT security and constantly demonstrates it with updates of the Chrome browser.

The Mountain View giant has announced that as of July 2018, Chrome will report all websites that use the HTTP protocol as unsafe in the address bar, in favor of greater network security and protection of sensitive user data.

During 2017, we have already met the first notices as "Unsafe" for HTTP pages where they were required passwords, credit cards or that housed data entry forms, but with the new update there will be no more distinctions. All pages not equipped with the HTTPS protocol will be reported in order to increase the user's awareness of the risks to which they are exposed on the web and the importance of protecting their personal data.

The release of version 68 of Chrome will not therefore require substantial changes in the use of the browser but will make it mandatory to adapt to the new Google security standards, so it will be essential to install the HTTPS certificate to encrypt incoming and outgoing communications.

In the transition phase towards HTTPS and for the annual renewal of the certificate it is essential to rely on those in charge, I&I provides the necessary support for the provision of these activities.
