Same if the page itself uses a secure https connection and has the padlock icon in the address bar to prove it, there is still a possibility that the forms on the page are using unencrypted http. This means that there is a risk that the data entered in these forms will be interaccepted before reaching the intended server, allowing them to be read or edited
Google is planning an update for Chrome that will notify you if a secure web page contains an unsafe form.

Like 9to5Google reports , when you start typing one of those "mixed forms " after updating, Chrome will alert you about the problem with a large pop-up window. The browser will also turn off autofill to minimize the possibility that you send sensitive information such as your name, yourre address or payment details without you realizing the risk.
You will receive another warning if you try to submit the mixed form, although the browser will not prevent you from doing so if you choose to continue.
In a message on his Chrome Blog , Google explains that Chrome's password manager will continue to work on mixed forms. "Chrome's password manager helps users enter unique passwords, and it is safer to use unique passwords, even on unsecured submitted forms, than to reuse words password ", he said.
The new warning system shouldarrive with Chrome 86, scheduled to roll out Oct.6.
Until then, tTo avoid accidentally entering data into an unsecured form, check the lock icon in the address bar again. Even though the URL begins with "https: //, a missing padlock icon means the form is mixed up."
