Chrome announced their quest to improve how they communicate the connection security of HTTP pages back in January.
Beginning in October 2017, Chrome will show the “Not secure” warning in two additional situations:
when users enter data on an HTTP page, and on all HTTP pages visited in Incognito mode.
Credit card information and passwords are not the only types of data that can trigger the 'Not Secure' warning on an HTTP page.
According to Chrome, any type of data that users type into websites should not be accessible to others on the internet.
Moving your website to HTTPS costs as little as $17/year and it enables the best performance
and powerful new features that HTTP cannot offer. It is as simple as installing an SSL
certificate on your web server. The benefits of SSL certificates include and are not limited to:
- Encrypt sensitive information
- Gain your customers’ trust
- Get a professional look
- SEO ranking boost
