Google has announced another innovation that awaits users of the Chrome browser.

Starting in Chrome 86, autocomplete will be disabled for forms that do not meet the specified security standard. We are talking about “mixed” forms, when on a secure page with HTTPS encryption, the form itself does not use HTTPS to send information, which puts the user’s data at risk.

The user will see a small alert when they try to fill out such an insecure form. If the user not only fills out an unsafe form, but also tries to send the entered information, he will be given a warning on the entire page and given a choice – to send the data in any case or go back.

Prior to Chrome 86, unsafe forms can only be distinguished by the missing padlock icon in the address bar. 

On August 25, the release of the stable version of Chrome 85 should take place. The release of Chrome 86 for ordinary users is scheduled for October 6.
