The final phase rollout starts October 16, 2018, with the general release of Chrome 70. The full details of the release notification will appear on the Chrome Release blog and are expected in within days.
Amongst the several feature enhancements, what is pertinent to marketers is Google will complete the removal of all Symantec’s old infrastructure and all of the TLS/SSL certificates it issued. Certificates issued under the brands Symantec, Thawte, GeoTrust, and RapidSSL are all impacted by the distrust update. Which, you may recall from the Chrome 66 update means that visitors navigating to a site with an older Symantec SSL certificate will be presented with an untrusted security warning and effectively prevents them from viewing your website and landing pages.
