Default Site showing as 'not secure' to Chrome browser

I'm getting a red 'not secure' warning tonight while viewing with Chrome. Did something change?

Back in July Google tweaked their rating system to include all HTTP sites get a "Not Secure" label, and BP is one of those. You should be seeing a lot of "Not Secure" across the web as Google wants all sites to use SSL encryption for their traffic. I'm not too worried about seeing "Not Secure" unless the website must be HTTPS, like a bank or anything requiring credit card info.

I assume BP (Tim?) will merge everything to SSL once the upgrade to the site is done, but there's no reason to do it any sooner with the upgrade in the works.

Thanks. I've seen it show as 'not secure' before, but it's in red text now, so it caught my eye.
