‘Secure’ in Chrome Browser Does Not Mean ‘Safe’

    Here is a good article on issues in the Chrome browser when connecting to a supposedly secure web site. As users become more aware of data security and looking to make sure the connection to the web site is secure by using https rather than http, it is important for them to understand that just because the web site is shown as secure (either by a closed, green padlock and/or the word ‘SECURE’) does not mean that the web site is safe (that is, not malicious).

    This web site uses an SSL certificate and should always connect using https. If you try to connect using http, it should automatically reconnect using https. As you can see in the address line in your browser, you can see the entire web site name.
