HTTP Website in Chrome 55

This is a pretty big step change in making encryption much more important for every site owner. There has been talk that Chrome will also introduce a warning for sites containing password fields but no HTTPS. At this time there is no difference with the standard HTTP website “Not Secure” warning.

It looks as though Chrome are slowly encouraging owners to go HTTPS even if they don’t think it is needed.

More prominence is also given to sites deploying correctly configured HTTPS certificates.
