Question

Is My Chrome Browser Under Attack?

By crinye ·
Hi there! I recently started noticing that my Chrome browser does not display the full URL when i load websites. The https and www parts no longer appear!
I'm afraid this will let me load websites that I cannot fully scrutinize. Any help will be appreciated.
I'm using Google Chrome Version 77.0.3865.120

Google has updated Chrome to not show https and www in a URL. If you still want to view it, you can double click on the URL and it will show you the complete URL as you are used to.
other than that, there are no security threats to your browser. if you still fell any, you can always reinstall the browser to clear any doubts.

It still displays the complete URL for me, but only if I click the whole link or click it twice. The lock symbol is still there to show that the website is secure.
