Websites Without HTTPS Are Now Marked as Insecure by Google Chrome

It is no news that Google says websites should be «secure by default». Their web browser, Chrome, will now alert users of non-secure websites.

This change came with Crome version 58, writes Search Engine Land.

In general, this summer has been a busy one for Google. In addition to Chrome marking all websites not using HTTPS as «non-secure», they also rolled out their Speed Update.

For more than a year now, Google has urged website owners to start using secure connections with HTTPS. They have even hinted at a small ranking boost to give an extra incitement. According to their blog post, the campaign has been successful:

  • More than 60% of Chrome-based traffic on Android and Windows is now secure.
  • More than 70% of Chrome-based traffic on Chrome OS and MacOS is now secure.
  • 81 of the world's 100 largest websites are now using HTTPS by default.

How demanding a move to HTTPS will be depends on the size and complexity of your website. Check out the links below to find out more about how the change affects you, as well as how to validate sites, and handling of mixed content.
