Google Launches Project to Track Encryption Efforts - Both Internally and at Other Popular Sites

Google launched today a new effort to track the progress of encryption efforts—both at Google and on other popular websites. Google hopes the project will hold the company and others accountable to encrypt so as to enhance web safety and security. Google plans to update the newly added section of its Transparency Report with ongoing progress made towards implementing HTTPS by default across Google’s services
