On a previous post, I mentioned that Chrome was adding an “ad-blocker” to make our surfing less stressful. Well, Chrome is planning to add another interesting feature to its repertoire.
When you do your banking you may notice that the address starts with ‘HTTPS’. The S at the end means that the communication between your computer and the bank is secure and encrypted. There are tons of sites already using this feature to show to their sites are legitimate and make any transaction secure.
However, there are still tons of sites out there without the S. This means that all communication between your computer and the site is not encrypted, and therefore transmitted in plain text. This means that any man-in-the-middle will be able to read the communication without issue.
With that in mind, Chrome will start marking and warning you of all sites that are “not secure” starting in July.
Let see how it goes and if you think that this is a good feature to have. Reach out to us on Facebook, I will be glad to know your thoughts.
Be safe out there, until next Malware Monday.
