Chrome does now leads them to believe that the site is completely 100% secure. They have no idea that it is just referring to the type of protocol it uses to transport the data back and forth between their browser and the web server.
Most hosts do offer SSL for free

I guess the SSL just encrypts the your submitted data on the browser. But if the site have suspicious code. Google will still warn you. SSL is just making your password and PIN secure. Hacker wont get your confidential information.

My Website doesn't have any information to secure it and we are accepting of information from the users.
Mine updated to 68.0.3440.75 yesterday.Mine insists it’s up to date with 67.0.3396.87. Is it possible that, like Safari, Chrome is tied in with OS version, and 10.9* won’t go past Chrome/67?

...which is fine if that benefits you in other ways, but not so much for just enabling HTTPSAgreed.
In affect, your site is *not* secure, only the front-facing servers.
Oh, and BTW, I am seeing loads of sites ranking well with "Not Secure"!I don't see that... far from it.
from the "Customize and Control Chrome: (the three vertical dots upper-right) choose "Help" then choose "About Google Chrome" this will sometimes jump-start an update.Yes, this is a somewhat convoluted way of reaching the same “about” box that is accessible directly from the Chrome menu. Either way, it names the version number, makes a quick visit to headquarters, and then declares that I'm up to date.
Yes, this is a somewhat convoluted way of reaching the same “about” box that is accessible directly from the Chrome menu.It *is* "directly from the Chrome menu" but anyway, if an update is available, that usually works but if your OS is that intransigent, sorry.
It *is* "directly from the Chrome menu"I meant the Chrome menu (by that name) in the ordinary menu bar which is visible and directly accessible all the time, rather than in a sub-sub-menu hidden behind the three dots.
the beginning of this thread made it sound as if there would be some kind of warning directly in the SERP, before you get as far as the offending page--which doesn't seem to be the case?I agree.
Google "HTTP Not Secure" Warnings Start...is misleading. It is not Google (SERP) that is displaying the warning (yet.)
