Chrome Will Mark All Sites with Text Forms "Not Secure" in October

Chrome now marks HTTP pages as “Not secure” if they have password or credit card fields.

The "Not secure" message will appear after user starts typing into the text field. Eventually, Google will mark all HTTP sites as "Not secure." Example:

To prevent that from happening to your website, you'd have to get a security certificate and migrate to HTTPS (the "S" at the end of that abbreviation stands for "Secure").
