Yes, the Chrome team ("Google", if you wish) intends to "gradually change their UX to display non-secure origins as affirmatively non-secure" [1]. The exact implementation details are still a subject of discussion (see the "Proposal: Marking HTTP As Non-Secure" on the browser's mailing lists), and as such it is a bit premature to make any claims about how ...

This sounds like a story that has grown massively in the telling. In August, Google announced that https websites would get a small boost in their search rankings compared to http sites. That's all; the http sites won't be marked or flagged as insecure. On your point 2, SSL providers are likely to get poorer, not richer, because the EFF is launching a new ...

Each search provider is different (or can be). This article discusses Google, though I wonder what Bing, Yahoo, and Duck Duck Go provide. In the old days, Google used to send the actual search text to the vendor, but their SSL search now means this privacy hole has gone dark. I skimmed this article, and you may find it interesting: ...

Like @user2313067 pointed, this problem is happening probably because the clock of your server is with wrong time. Google Authenticator is an implementation of OTP (One-time password) and it is based on a private seed and on time to check if the code you are entering is correct.

Above is a packet capture of communication between my phone and Google's server(74.125.68.19). Apparently, TLS is used to protect data in transit. TLS is also used for your browser's connection to a HTTPS website so the security is comparable. If transmitted over cellular networks, there is a second layer of encryption between your phone and your ...
