Although the blocking process will be initiated with the release of Chrome 83 (to be released in June 2020), Google first wants to educate users and also give time for website owners to remove mixed content from their websites. That’s why Chrome 81 (to be released in March 2020) will provide a console warning message about all mixed content downloads.

This process, which begins in March, has been divided into six phases by Google. Here’s the outline is given by Google for desktop platforms (Windows, macOS, Chrome OS, and Linux):

  • Chrome 81 (to be released in March 2020) — Chrome will print a console message to warn webmasters about all mixed content downloads.
  • Chrome 82 (to be released in April 2020) — Chrome will start warning users about mixed content downloads of executables (.exe, .apk, etc.) and print a console warning for all other types of files.
  • Chrome 83 (to be released in June 2020) — This is when the blocking phase will begin. Chrome will begin blocking mixed content executables. Also, it’ll warn users on mixed content archives (.zip, .iso, etc.). Console warning messages for all other types of files will continue.
  • Chrome 84 (to be released in August 2020) — Chrome will expand its blocklist to archives and disk images. On other mixed content file types such as .pdf and .docx files, Chrome will display a warning to the users. For images, audio, and video files, console warnings will continue.
  • Chrome 85 (to be released in September 2020) — Chrome will block all files except images, audio, and video files. A warning message will be shown to users before downloading these files.  
  • Chrome 86 (to be released in October 2020) — Chrome will block all content being served on non-secure HTTP when you click the download link via an HTTPS website. In other words, Chrome will block all mixed content downloads.
