In Chrome 86, there will be a warning feature that informs you that the input of personal data on a page is not protected by HTTPS encryption and therefore is insecure.

Often, encrypted HTTPS pages have forms for entering personal information. In many cases, these forms only support the HTTP protocol and are not as secure as the page on which
they are.

Now Google Chrome will warn users before entering personal data that forms are insecure and do not support the HTTPS protocol. This is how the company expects to protect personal data from
kidnapping by scammers.

Google will also disable autocomplete on such forms. When the user notices that autocomplete does not work, it will be an additional warning for him about the danger of typing
your data, passwords and bank details.

Previously, Google tried to warn users about this problem differently — the padlock icon disappeared from the address bar when it encountered an HTTP form.

The company claims that such a warning was not clear enough – few people paid attention to it.

Google strongly recommends that developers translate forms to fill in data to HTTPS.
