From your own SSL certificate vendor or SSL certificate provider, you may have heard that non https websites are marked “Not Secure” by Google’s chrome browser 68. Perhaps, you may have read this on the Internet. Well! That’s an old news right? But, did you know that Apple is also walking in Google’s footprints when it is about considering non http websites as not secured. Yes! You heard it right!!
Apple’s not secure warning is shown on its Technology preview browser 70, which is a browser used by Apple to test any technology. Soon Safari browser is going to inherit this trait and display the similar warning if non secured websites are opened on it. Nevertheless, the organization has not disclosed the timeline of implementing this change to its mainstream browser, Safari.
Coming back to Google; well! It already promoted the usage of secured web pages in the year 2014 by incorporating https in their SEO algorithm. Afterwards, it started discouraging non secured (non https) websites and finally accomplished its goal of showing ‘Not Secured’ warnings against non secured websites. It is Apple’s turn this time!
