Google Chrome will begin marking all HTTP pages as “not protected” with the release of Chrome 68 in July 2018

Google Chrome is getting an update

After 5 months, the current version of the most popular browser in the world will add the text ” Not secure” in the address bar of all pages that are not opened by https. Chrome 68 is coming out on July.

Google Security Blog has published the news about the next stage of forcing the transition to https. They can also be read on the official website.

The final stage (until it is announced when) will be such a red icon.

What will happen with Chrome 68?

One of Google’s main arguments in defence of this policy is the Let’s Encrypt project . Let’s Encrypt (by the way, one of the Linux Foundation projects ) provides TLS certificates for free. You can get it either manually at , or automate the process of verification and re-issue with the open ACME protocol. Among the many client implementations for different web servers and environments, the officially recommended customer is CertBot (which is developing the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) ). Of the good news – on February 27, 2018, they will start issuing wildcard certificates, which many were waiting for.

We hope that Chrome 68 will be an overall version of Chrome.

  1. Hi there! Quick question that’s entirely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My web site looks weird when browsing from my iphone. I’m trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to fix this problem. If you have any recommendations, please share. Many thanks!

    1. Hi! It depends on how your website is built. Is it built using WordPress? If so, the best way to go is to change your template. Go to Appearance > Themes in your Dashboard, press Add New button on top and search for “responsive theme”. There are plenty of them and almost any not-too-old theme comes responsive by default.

      If your website was custom-built, then there is no stable out-of-the-box solution. You will need to refer to a professional and by the way, we as Coderoo are providing these services, too 🙂
