New Browser Security Warnings for Non-SSL Login Forms

January 26, 2017 Michael O'Laughlin

Chrome and Firefox are updating their messaging around insecure web forms with passwords or credit card fields.  With the release of Firefox 51 yesterday and Chrome 56 today, a new warning is displayed to inform users whether a form is secure or not.
