On the left of Chrome’s omnibar, it was to convey to users that their connection to a particular site might not be private.

Though the gray icon is to remain for the time being. With its new version, every HTTP site will be flagged as ‘not secure’ whether there is an input data field or not.

The search giant continues to encourage site owners to use https transition for secure user data.
