Http to https - email warning

Perhaps the simplest solution (at least in my case) is to simply remove the search textbox input from public pages.

1.  Will the tool that google used to generate the warning email be readily available for retesting?

2.  What is the threshold - if any?   if a single page within the entire site has a textbox without https?  a percentage of pages?

Chrome itself! Although there there isnt a proper v62 release yet.

Its page specific. It's done by the user's browser in real time. 

If the form they are about to submit is insecure it would show the the warning. 

If you only have one such page, it will only be shown when using that page.

Hi Lisa,

You can now test the behavior of your site on Chrome 62 Canary:
- Download and install Canary from this link: https://www.google.com/chrome/browser/canary.html
- Navigate to chrome://flags and look for "#mark-non-secure-as". Change that flag to "Warn on HTTP while in Incognito mode or after editing forms". That will simulate the behavior of stable Chrome in October.
- Relaunch Canary.

If you now visit an http page with a form field, you should see "Not secure" in the omnibox when you start typing in the form field.
