Effective July 2018, Google’s Chrome browser will mark non-HTTPS sites as ‘not secure’

Website security

July is to be a big month for Google. Earlier this year, the company announced its Speed Update set to roll out in July, and they also announced it will then also mark all sites that have not migrated to HTTPS as “not secure.”

This move will coincide with the release of Chrome 68 and will look like this in a user’s browser:

Effective July 2018, Google’s Chrome browser will mark non-HTTPS sites as ‘not secure’

Google has been pushing webmasters to make the change to non-secure web sites a for years now – including suggesting small rankings boost as a further incentive to shift. Their campaign has proved successful. According to their Google’s blog post:

  • Over 68% of Chrome traffic on both Android and Windows is now protected
  • Over 78% of Chrome traffic on both Chrome OS and Mac is now protected
  • 81 of the top 100 sites on the web use HTTPS by default

Depending upon the size of a site and scope of the project, a migration from HTTP to HTTPS can be quite an undertaking. We can help with that.

“It has been an absolute pleasure working with Andrew. I found him creative, patient, 100% reliable and above all, receptive to my fussy suggestions and requirements. From start to finish, I have been impressed by his attitude to my website, particularly the speed with which it was put together and the professional look that it has on completion. I couldn’t have asked for more and have no hesitation in wholeheartedly recommending his excellent service to anyone in the future. Thank You.”
