Disable “Not Secure” Warning in Chrome

Last Updated on February 17, 2017

From the beginning of this year, Chrome has started marking HTTP sites as “Not secure”. Chrome will not mark all HTTP websites as “Not Secure”, though. You’ll only see a warning in the HTTP pages which collect important information such as email and passwords.

If you don’t like how this “Not Secure” warning shows up, you can try disabling it in Chrome. Keep in mind that it’s a bad idea. A 3rd party can intercept all the information that you enter on the pages which don’t use HTTPS. This can result in data theft and other information loss.

Note: This article is only for informational purpose. It is recommended that you shouldn’t disable the “Not secure warning” on Chrome.

Disable “Not Secure” warning in Chrome

Disable Not Secure Warning Chrome

  • Open Chrome and press F6 to shift the focus to the address bar.
  • Type chrome://flags/#mark-non-secure-as in the address bar and press Enter.
  • Initially, this value is set to Default. In the default mode, Chrome will only show a “Not secure” warning on the pages which ask for your personal information. This includes the pages which allow you to enter your username, passwords, credit card info etc.
  • Set this value to “Always mark HTTP as neutral”.
  • Restart Chrome.

Now, Chrome won’t show you the “Not secure” warning while browsing HTTP pages. Alternatively, you can also try other options in the drop-down list.

Always mark HTTP as actively dangerous: This option will show all the HTTP pages on the web with the warning in the address bar.

Display a verbose state when password or credit card fields are detected on HTTP page: This will only show the warning only on the address bar. This is the default value.

Display a verbose state and form warning when password or credit card fields are detected on HTTP page: This will show the warning on both the address bar and the input field.

It’s up to you how you want Chrome to show the “Not secure” warning. Normally, the default option is fine for most people. You can adjust this to whatever you like.
