Google says HTTPS-based websites crucial to protect users against security attacks

BGR India Wednesday, 15 February 2017 ()
A HTTPS-based website is a safer way to protect users from possible security attacks, the security director at Google has said, emphasising that major South Korean search engines do not support this system. “Top websites in (South) Korea that don’t support HTTPS are Naver and Daum. It’s not just a problem for (South) Korea but a challenge for the world and the developers,” said Parisa Tabriz. Tabriz heads the team who protects Google Chrome and its billions of users from criminal hackers, Yonhap news agency reported. Google began adding security warnings for websites that do not use strong encryptions beginning in 2017, putting a clear “Not secure” warning next to online websites that use unencrypted HTTP connections rather than encrypted HTTPS
