Google Chrome clamping down on Insecure forms – Do you have an SSL?

19th August 2020 | | Internet, Marketing

Google have announced that on their latest version of chrome to be released (86), they will be cracking down on websites with insecure forms. This will result in the user being shown two warnings when attempting to submit an insecure form. This is vital to ensure your website is secure to make sure you are not missing out on any important communication being submitted by your patients

Who is at risk?

It’s as simple as this… if you’re website is transmitting through the HTTP protocol rather than the HTTPS protocol, any user on your website will be displayed these warnings before being able to submit a form which will likely result in the user not completing submission.

How can I tell if my website is secure?

You can easily identify if your website is secure by looking at the URL address and if your site is secure you should see a padlock like below:

You can also check if your website is secure by doing a crawl through this website here:

What warnings will be shown?

According to research, Google will begin displaying the following text beneath the insecure form you are trying to submit:

“This form is not secure. Autofill has been turned off.”

If you choose to ignore this message and proceed to submit the form, you will then be greeted by the final warning as displayed below:

When will this be implemented on Google?

The release of Google Chrome 86 is stable on the 6th October 2020 (With the Beta making an appearance between September 3rd – September 10th.

My website is not secure! Who do I speak to?

If your website is managed by Dental Design and you have discovered that your website is not secure, all you need to do is get in contact with your account manager and they can discuss this further to ensure your website is safe & secure. Communications are vital during these unprecedented times so be sure to check your website is secure 😊

Stay safe!
