In an attempt to make the Web more secure and also make more Internet users adopt its Chrome web browser, Google announced today that future Chrome releases would mark all HTTP sites as "Not Secure."

The search giant published a statement today on its Chromium blog to inform all Chrome users that the upcoming Google Chrome 68 release that will be out later in the year will automatically mark all HTTP sites as "Not secure."

It's Google's attempt to "force" more websites and webmasters to move their domains to the more secure HTTPS (Secure HTTP) protocol that is being adopted by more and more sites each day. HTTPS it known to offer the best encryption these days.

"For the past several years, we’ve moved toward a more secure Web by strongly advocating that sites adopt HTTPS encryption," said Google in the statement. "Beginning in July 2018 with the release of Chrome 68, Chrome will mark all HTTP sites as “not secure”."

More than a year ago, Google introduced a function in its proprietary web browser to mark HTTP web pages that collected sensitive information from users, such as credit card information or passwords, as non-secure, with the Chrome 56 release, as part of a long-term plan.

That plan continues to grow with the upcoming release of the Chrome 68 web browser, which present users a "Not secure" badge on the omnibox for all HTTP web pages and sites. Chrome 68 is expected to arrive sometime this summer.
