Google Chrome Security Update

Last Update: September 29, 2019

Google Chrome Security Update


Google Chrome Plans you better be aware of. One of them is To Block Third-Party Cookies By Default

According to several mails received, Google also plans to update how Chrome browsers handle cookies. In doing so, Google wants to provide users with :

  • more transparency about how sites use cookies
  • better controls for cross-site cookies.

This requires special attention from us all...
Developers will have to define additional attributes when setting cookies intended to be accessed across sites.

Impact expected for bloggers

Publishers who do not use secure links will have to update to secure links.

Non-secure traffic will be redirected. This will create latency when directing traffic from blogger site to advertiser site and will result in traffic drop to the advertiser site.

If a blogger has a custom process that crawls affiliate links and if they do not update non-secure links to secure ones, the system-implemented redirect from HTTP to HTTPS may create issues for many sites.

Required updates:

Review the links you use

  • your links
  • those from referrals or affiliate marketing

You must update the non-secure (affiliate) HTTP link to a secure link HTTPS.

Advise is as follows: ensure that your links have been updated by September 30.

PS

Also check links in comments (some themes allow to set them off)

Firefox just did this and it's gonna make issues for affiliates until IP tracking or hard coding commissions replaces cookie tracking

Oh they are just doing secure cookies? Firefox is blocking all cookies from 3rd parties as default now.

contact the company and tell them BUY A FREAKING SSL CERTIFICATE, make sure they get the message in bold because some just think it is an added expense but its vital now with Google's last several updates.

Maybe you could send off a note to the vendor. That is their responsibility.

There are also free SSL certificates. Alternatively, they can go to Cloudflare, one of the top CDNs and register for free. They give additional security and caching services for free.

I have some sites on the Cloudflare SSL. It is amazing the degree of value that they give out on free.

How do I know if a link is secure or not?
Reply

Look at the top of the page where the link is at. It will either say HTTP or HTTPS, if the "S" isn't there then it's not secure
