Encrypted.google.com is going away
Important: Google will turn off encrypted.google.com on April 30, 2018. When you visit encrypted.google.com, you’ll be directed to www.google.com.
Newer browsers use HTTPS
Google created encrypted.google.com to give users a way to securely search the internet. Now, all Google products and most newer browsers, like Chrome, automatically use HTTPS connections.
How this change affects older browsers
If you go to www.google.com and don’t see "https" in the address bar, you can:
- Type https://www.google.com.
- Update your browser to the latest version.
