Google Chrome will try to stop you from typing into risky text boxes

Updated: May 1, 2023

"See that little “closed lock” icon in your web browser, right next to the URL? That means you’re browsing via HTTPS, encrypting your traffic so third parties can’t spy on most of the information you’re sending. But secure-looking HTTPS websites can still house insecure HTTP forms for you to fill in your passwords and other personal data — and Google is planning to do something about that in Chrome 86, coming this October (via 9to5Google).

Google’s also disabling autofill on these so-called “mixed forms,” so the fact that your password managers and auto-complete keyboards don’t automatically drop in the text should be a third form of warning."
