The search giant has been one of the main promoters of this initiative for some time now, along with other current tech giants such as Manzana or Facebook, and it is that he has wanted the Internet little by little to become a more secure network by migrating from HTTP to HTTPS.
We say this based on a series of data that have just been published in this regard in which Google itself states that 64% of traffic from Chrome on Android-based devices, now you’re done protected with HTTPS. In the same way, the search engine informs users that in 66% of the pages that are visited from environments Windows, and 75% from Mac, the same thing happens, they already use HTTPS. To a large extent this is due to Google’s push on the top managers of these web portals, all to make the web more secure, which is why it started by marking the sites that use HTTP connections as insecure, as it seems to be working.

On the other hand and with regard to one of the operating systems that is growing the most in market penetration How is it Chrome OS, has also reached 75% of portals visited with HTTPS using the Chrome browser.
The migration from HTTP to HTTPS has grown substantially
Now if we talk about the 100 pages most important and visited of the Net nowadays, Google also points out that 71 of these already focus on the use of secure connectionsace by default, which is a 37% increase over the previous year. Therefore and taking into account these metric, it can be deduced that the progress over the last 12 months has been quite rapid in themigration to HTTPS, something the big G firm has been pushing by putting pressure on sites that were sticking with HTTP.
In fact, about a year ago the company itself announced a year that it would begin to mark all websites that used HTTP connections as insecure when transmitting Private information What passwords or information bank from the Chrome browser. Later, it extended that protection when users entered any type of data in a HTTP page.
