Fix “Not Secure” SSL Error on Chrome Browser | Remove Warning

Remove Not Secure warning from Google Chrome Browser or Convert a Non-secure site into a Secure website on with the help of Chrome Extension.

Google started showing all the HTTP sites as “Not Secure” on Chrome Browser. The move came after 2 years of promise from Google to make the internet safer. Following Chrome 68, all the unencrypted sites will be labeled as Not Secure. Today I will tell you how you can either remove the “Not Secure” Warning from your Chrome or Switch the Site from unencrypted HTTP to Encrypted HTTPS.

Earlier Chrome Browser used to show a Green padlock for Secure Sites while Unsecured sites used to have a small info icon which when clicked used to read “Your connection to this site is not secure. You should not enter any sensitive information on this site (for example, passwords or credit cards), because it could be stolen by attackers”. Taking the security more grievously, Google started going harsh on the sites that do not have HTTPS.

Without HTTPS encryption, the third party can intercept the information you send to the website. It is never recommended to enter your account credentials and other details in an unencrypted website.

There is no bad in visiting a website without any SSL encryption but in this present state of cybersecurity where even a small loophole in security can cause a high data breach. A secure HTTPS-certified website can protect you from any rogue by creating a secure tunnel between the website and the server.

Today in this post I will tell you how you can remove the “Not Secure” Warning from Google Chrome Browser. I will also tell you about an extension that can convert all the HTTP “Not Secure” Sites into HTTPS “Secure Site”.
