You browse several different websites daily on the internet, and many ask you to fill out a short form for them. Some of these forms shown on HTTPS sites are risky, which are used to gather your information. In order to protect the users from falling into the trap, Google shows a small closed lock icon right next to the URL on the address bar. This indicates that the website you are browsing is secure and encrypted so that third-party spies cannot track your information.
However, several HTTPS websites might look secure but still make the users fill out insecure HTTP forms. Google recognized the issue and is trying to do something about it in its upcoming version i.e., Chrome 86. According to one of Google’s official blog post, you will be warned several times boldly when something fishy is detected.
The first warning will somewhat look like this.
However, if you still proceed with it, a second warning will be shown and ask for confirmation.
Google will also disable the auto-fill option for these “mixed forms,” which will prevent your saved passwords and data from being put into the forms automatically. This is probably the third kind of warning by Google.
Previously, Google used to remove the closed lock icon for the website that was detected for an HTTP form, but it didn’t come out to be an effective solution.
