Google Chrome 86 will prevent the submission of information on unencrypted web forms.

Google is testing new security measures in Chrome 86 to protect the privacy and security of online users. The new browser will bring a new setting tag, “Disable Autofill for mixed forms,” which will automatically determine the current level of security when it is activated.

If an unencrypted page is detected, it prevents automatic filling out of online forms, such as credit card purchase forms or address fields (a feature that many Chrome users rely on for online purchases and registrations).

If you choose to fill out the form manually, Google will again try to prevent users from submitting information in plain text and display the following warning:

Google Chrome 86 will prevent the submission of information on unencrypted web forms.

Of course, users can still choose “Any Submission” to override the warning.

Developers can test whether their sites are affected by the latest version of Chrome Canary by opening the hashtags ” Disable Autofill for mixed forms” in Chrome: https://the hashtags.
