Google has been working hard to push websites to use HTTPS protocol which is safer than HTTP protocol. The company announced last year that it will force all the websites that collect data to use SSL and HTTPS protocol for better safety of the user data.

Now the company is taking it to another level and will remove the green secure padlock from the address bar. This will make sure to show HTTPS website as normal and will mark the HTTP website as unsafe accompanied by a red padlock. This will be more evident in the upcoming Chrome 70 update which is scheduled for later this year.

The latest step from Chrome will ensure HTTPS protocol is default and will make web a little more secure. What do our readers think of this step from Google. Do share your thoughts in the comments section below.
