    Internet users will soon experience an increase in privacy and security warnings displayed by the web browsers that they use to connect to Internet sites.

    Users of Google Chrome will see an increase in "Your connection is not private" security messages and users of Mozilla Firefox will receive more "Warning: Potential Security Risk Ahead" warnings in the browser.

    Google, Mozilla and other browser makers revealed plans to distrust all certificates issued by Symantec in web browsers in 2017. Several certificates were issued in the past that did not comply with industry standards and investigation in the matter revealed that "Symantec had entrusted several organizations with the ability to issue certificates without the appropriate or necessary oversight".

    Google and Mozilla revealed a roadmap for the browsers to distrust all certificates issued by Symantec. Starting October 2018, all versions of Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and other browsers will distrust all certificates issued by Symantec.
