QUOTE OF THE DAY:
“Being busy does not always mean real work. The object of all work is production or accomplishment and to either of these ends there must be forethought, system, planning, intelligence, and honest purpose, as well as perspiration. Seeming to do is not doing”. – Thomas A. Edison
GOOGLE ROLLS OUT NEW SECURITY UPDATE FOR CHROME USERS
Google has started rolling out update for Chrome users, where HTTP pages will now be marked as ‘not secure’ to help users browse the web safely.
WHAT’S IN THE UPDATE?
Google nearly 2 years ago announced that HTTP pages will be marked as ‘not secure’ web pages to help users browse web safely. This is done to ensure users that their personal information is safe and secure on the network. Basically, HTTP websites are not encrypted, and personal information can easily be extracted from them.
Well, now all the HTTP pages will be shown as ‘not secure’ pages to user so that before entering any data user know that this connection is not secure, and their data can be leaked and exploited through this. Chrome also will show this warning for HTTP pages visited in Incognito mode. This is the next step towards more secure web.
WILL BROWSING BE MORE SECURE NOW?
Yes, with this update connections will be encrypted and more secure for using. Warning from Chrome for a not secure connection will let users know that this site isn’t secure. And, will also notify website owners to improve the connection and security of website.
Google after announcing the update recorded some stats that most of the website owners have switched to HTTPS and according to its Transparency report:
- 76 percent of Chrome traffic on Android is now protected, up from 42 percent.
- 85 percent of Chrome traffic on Chrome OS is now protected, up from 67 percent.
- 83 of the top 100 sites on the web use HTTPS by default, up from 37.
Chrome will now be labelling sites with HTTP connection that reportedly collect passwords or credit-card info as not secure. Users will be notified about this with a warning before proceeding to webpage to make their browsing experience more safe and secure. Well, many website owners have started acting on this update, and are now changing their default connection from HTTP to HTTPS. And later this year in October, Chrome will also start showing a red ‘not secure’ alert to users when they enter data on HTTP pages.
