Google to start naming and shaming non-HTTPS websites


"Google is to step up its campaign for all websites to adopt HTTPS encryption by marking them down as less secure in research results. The search giant intends to start doing it from January 2017, giving website operators a little over three months to sort themselves out.

The move will punish, in particular, publishers reliant on web traffic pushed via Google, which have been slow to make the shift.

Google has hinted at such a move for some time.

‘To help users browse the web safely, Chrome indicates connection security with an icon in the address bar. Historically, Chrome has not explicitly labelled HTTP connections as non-secure,’ said Emily Schechter from the Chrome Security team in a blog post.”
