Last month, Google spelled out the schedule it will use to “look for the padlock.” Starting in July, the search giant will mark insecure URLs in its market-dominant Chrome, not those that already are secure. Google’s goal? Pressure all website owners to adopt digital certificates and encrypt the traffic of all their pages.
The decision to tag HTTP sites – those not locked down with a certificate and which don’t encrypt server-to-browser and browser-to-server communications – rather than label the safer HTTPS websites, didn’t come out of nowhere. Google has been promising as much since 2014.
Rest assured, all Apis Productions‘ sites we manage and maintain have been “https” secured and will always be “https” secured for years to come.
