New Chrome Version Compatibilty


Will Let’s Encrypt compatible with Google Chrome V.68?


Hi @batisteli,

All versions of Google Chrome should trust the IdenTrust root that Let’s Encrypt chains from. I don’t believe Google has changed anything that should affect this trust. If they had, they would have announced it publicly and also informed the operators of Let’s Encrypt.


Why do you ask about 68 in particular?


Chrome 68 made headlines because it will show a warning that all websites that use plain HTTP are “Not Secure”:

If you use Let’s Encrypt and redirect HTTP to HTTPS you will not be affected by this. That means if your website says “Secure” in Chrome today, it will not change in Chrome 68.


Also, Let’s Encrypt already embeds Certificate Transparency Log signatures in the certificate, as required.
