Google is giving web developers WEEKS to prepare for the next phase of its plan to mark all HTTP pages as 'Not secure'.
October will mark stage two of Google's plan to label all HTTP pages as 'Not secure' in Chrome.
Google started to label some pages in HTTP as non-secure with the release of Chrome 56. This phase affected pages that transmit sensitive information such as login and payment-card data on the web.
The not-secure label indicated that data is being exchanged on an unencrypted connection. HTTPS, the secure version of HTTP, offers better protection against someone on the same network viewing or modifying the traffic, in what is known as a man-in-the-middle attack.
Beginning in October, Chrome will label HTTP pages as insecure if users can input any data. Google highlights this will apply to any page with a search box.
