Google Drops “Secure” HTTPS Indicator

Google announced last Thursday that it will stop marking https pages as secure, pointing out that users should expect the web to be safe by default.

The change, which will be rolled out in Chrome 69 in September, will include the removal of the green padlock and “secure” wording from the address bar. Additionally, it was revealed that http pages will be marked as “not secure” starting around October with Chrome 70.

Google reasoned that the usage of http before was too high which is why they did not mark it with a strong red warning.
