Googles Chrome browser to mark HTTP sites as “Not secure”
Beginning January 2017 Googles Chrome browser will start marking HTTP websites that require password as not-secure, long term every site that use HTTP will eventually be marked as non-secure. Let’s get ready!
Nowadays many free Wi-Fi spots are still open and unencrypted, when you surf a standard HTTP website a bad guy on the same network can with little skill read what you are browsing and doing. With HTTPS this traffic is encrypted between browser and server.
