Is it possible to change google to show HTTPS websites again?
I have no idea if I'm entering a safe website or not. I don't know why google would change this!
There's no padlock anymore and the pages look completely different.
"Google has once again started to strip the "www" subdomain and "https://" identifier from URLs shown in the address bar."

If you mean Google Chrome, then look for the lock symbol on the left end of the web address window. A closed lock means secure.

Google only shows the submitted URL and it does not shows the URL their end. So be careful, if you have unauthorised websites.

There is a lock symbol right next to the site that you've visited. You can click on that and see if you are secure or not. There you can check the certificate, cookies, and even the site settings.
If you want to visit sites while secure, you can add an extension for Google Chrome web browser. The extension is "Malwarebytes". Look it up in Google web store. Here is a link:

There should still be a padlock icon to the left of the web address.

Google didn't change anything, Google is a search engine. If you mean Chrome, the web browser, then it depends on what happened, as they wouldn't have changed it either. More likely you made the change yourself, or you've infected your browser with malware, which did it for you.
Download the free copy of malwarebytes and run a scan, and see what it finds.Source(s): www.malwarebytes.org
