Google Chrome to start flagging unencrypted websites Jan 2017
« on: November 20, 2016, 02:27:15 PM »
Google has announced that their Chrome browser will begin flagging websites that don't use HTTPS encryption starting January 2017 as "Not secure". It will start with web pages that prompt for a credit card number or a password.

Google plans to issue increasingly strong warnings as time goes on.

Since every page in the NHRV Forum has a logon password prompt you might want to consider adding SSL/TLS encryption to avoid getting dinged with increasingly dire warning messages.

Just a heads up.

In addition to Google Chrome, Firefox 57 is now flagging the NHRV Forum.



Google Chrome 68 will start flagging all non-HTTPS pages starting July 2018.

Thanks Husker, though I doubt anything will be done about it at this point.
I'm just like you, only smarterô.
