Emily Schechter, Product Manager of Google Chrome’s Security, announced on the Chromium Blog last May 17 about the evolving of security by removing all the secure indicators for HTTPS pages.

In Chrome 67, a current version, has a green “Secure” label of the HTTP websites. By September, it will upgrade to Chrome 69 which has no green “Secure” label but will still have an icon of locked meaning it is already secured because Google wants to focus on the unsecured HTTPS. Google Chrome with non-secure websites will have a red warning when a user enter their data so that the user will be notified that a third party can easily see their data. This update was confirmed by Schechter and may be applied by October 2018.

Google will also start to implement a “Not Secure” label this July 2018 for all the non-HTTPS pages.
