Websites With Non-Secure Password & Credit Card Forms To Be Labeled

Google wants the Web to be more secure. A major step in that direction is a change in how Google will label Http (non-secure) websites that have password or credit card forms in the Chrome browser. Beginning in January 2017 (Chrome 56 update), websites that have non-secure (not https) pages for transmitting passwords and credit card forms will be explicitly labeled as non-secure with an icon & warning.

Google Chrome Non-Secure Warning Update

The Google Security Blog signaled Google's intent to encourage all websites to use Https encryption for security. "Eventually, we plan to label all HTTP pages as non-secure, and change the HTTP security indicator to the red triangle that we use for broken HTTPS." Website owners are encouraged to apply Https security to their sites now. Google will at some point in the future provide a warning for any website that is unsecure.
