After years of pushing for “safe by default” websites, Google will identify unsafe sites in the Chrome browser starting in mid-July.

Months passed and here we are: July arrived
July is shaping up to be a great month for Google . In early February, the Australia Business Phone List announced that its speed update will be released in July. In addition, it announced that it will mark all sites that have not migrated from HTTP to HTTPS as “not secure.”

Chrome HTTPS: successful campaign
Google has been pushing webmasters to make the switch to unsafe websites for years. The campaign has been successful. According to the Google blog post:

Australia Business Phone List

Over 68% of Chrome traffic on Android and Windows is now protected.
More than 78% of Chrome traffic on Chrome OS and Mac is also protected.
81 of the top 100 sites on the web use HTTPS by default.

Guides for making the transition
Depending on the size of a site and the scope of the project, a migration from HTTP to HTTPS can be hard work. You can check out the resources below for detailed guides. They are in English, but they can be used to make this change on your or your client’s sites, along with resources for validation and handling of mixed content issues.
