Chrome’s security team announced today that the browser will start marking
websites that use insecure HTTP connections to transmit passwords and
credit card data as insecure, beginning in January 2017. The warning will
appear in the address bar of the browser and will call users’ attention to
the fact that their personal information could be snooped or stolen.

Eventually, Chrome will add the security warning to HTTP pages when a user
visits them in the browser’s “Incognito” mode, and later the warning will
roll out to all HTTP pages.
