Now Google's security lock will not be visible in the address bar of the website, what is the reason for this decision
Google To Remove https lock icon A big update is coming for users using Google Chrome. The company has decided to remove the lock icon from the address bar of websites in the Chrome browser.
Tech company Google's web browser Chrome is used not only in India but by millions of users around the world. If you also use Google Chrome in your everyday life, then this news may surprise you.
Actually, Google is going to remove the HTTP lock icon from Weblinks very soon. That is, the lock icon seen with any website link on Chrome will no longer be visible.
Actually, Google launched its web browser Chrome in the year 2008. During that time Hypertext Transfer Protocol was introduced for security reasons to visit online links. HTTPS is an extension of Hypertext Transfer Protocol.
It is an encrypted protocol that serves to provide an indication of privacy and security to the user on an online website. Along with this, Chrome also shows a green coloured lock icon in the address bar, which has now been decided to be removed.
Actually, the company has made it clear that with HTTPS the lock icon takes the user's attention. While visiting any website, on seeing the green lock, the user assumes that the website is not fake, while in many cases it has been seen that the HTTPS lock icon has also been used on fake websites.
The company has made it clear that the HTTPS lock icon will not be completely removed. In place of the lock icon, the company will bring another icon. This change will be a part of Android 13's Material U theme design. Instead, a tune icon can be presented to the user. Google will introduce the new icon with the Chrome 117 launch. It will be released in September 2023 this year.
