Google’s quest to form a more secure web will take a new shape this October with Chrome v62.
Chrome will begin showing “Not Secure” on all sites without an SSL Certificate where users can enter text in a contact form.
Nearly 50% of internet users choose Chrome as their browser of choice so this can have a big impact on the way people interact with your website(s).
If you have sites which include contact forms, information request fields, etc, which do not have an SSL protecting them, please reach out to me so we can discuss your plans to get an SSL Certificate to avoid any possible warning signs when people visit your site.
“Passwords and credit cards are not the only types of data that should be private. Any type of data that users type into websites should not be accessible to others on the network, so starting in version 62 Chrome will show the “Not secure” warning when users type data into HTTP sites.”
