Chrome To Tag HTTP Sites "Not Secure" Shortly

Google has announced that all the HTTP Sites will be marked as “Not Secure” in the upcoming version of the Chrome browser from the coming July, as the company plans to release Google Chrome 68. The company was tagging the HTTP sites gradually as "not secure" from last year. Now, from July 2018, all the HTTP sites will be marked as “Not Secure”.
 
In Chrome 68, the Omnibox will display “Not Secure” for all HTTP pages, as shown in the following image shared on Google's security blog.

Google also states that they are willing to make the migration from HTTP to HTTPS very easier and cheaper for developers. Here are the statement and a video shared by the company.
 
“Chrome is dedicated to making it as easy as possible to set up HTTPS. Mixed content audits are now available to help developers migrate their sites to HTTPS in the latest Node CLI version of Lighthouse, an automated tool for improving web pages. The new audit in Lighthouse helps developers find which resources a site loads using HTTP, and which of those are ready to be upgraded to HTTPS simply by changing the subresource reference to the HTTPS version.
Chrome’s new interface will help users understand that all HTTP sites are not secure, and continue to move the web towards a secure HTTPS web by default.”
