Google search has started to downrank the unencrypted websites since year 2018
Google has confirmed that out of the top 100 sites on the web, eighty percent of site is using the HTTPS, The company has said with this step taken, majority of the web traffic will move to the HTTPS marking from the July month

Without the HTTP marking, someone having access to your network can tamper with packet data and inject malware or track your web access.
