Google Chrome to block insecure HTTP downloads


The American technology dominator Google is getting ready to roll out a new feature that will shield users from malicious and dubious HTTP downloads. On an Android smartphone, it is obvious that Google Chrome classifies any HTTP website a user visits as “not secure” in the address bar.

Google is preparing to roll out a security feature that will eventually prevent users from opening any insecure downloads from HTTP websites, according to a report by 9to5Google. Notably, the American browser has been attempting over the past few years to make Chrome a secure platform by urging users to potentially only use HTTPS websites.
