Google is making an interesting change to Chrome. In the future your Chrome browser will flag unencrypted websites as insecure, displaying a red “x” over a padlock in the URL bar. This will flag that your website is unsafe. With this upcoming change, Google is making it clear that websites should all be encrypted, and be served over HTTPS. Ilia Kolochenko, CEO of High-Tech Bridge have the following comments on it.

“This is a great initiative that will definitely help to make a web browsing experience more secure. Taking into consideration how many people today are using their emails, social networks and sensitive web applications over insecure wireless networks, strong and reliable SSL/TLS encryption becomes a ‘must have’.

At High-Tech Bridge, we are also contributing to the making the web safer. Our free online SSL server test service allows anyone to verify how secure his, or her SSL/TLS connection to a server is, and if it’s compliant with PCI DSS and NIST requirements. Most importantly, we are not limited by HTTPS protocol only – people can test encryption of any other protocols and services, such as their emails.”[/su_note]
