How we built it

Remove getUserMedia() from Insecure Contexts (removed)

Per, we are deprecating and then removing getUserMedia() from insecure contexts. getUserMedia() is a powerful feature that allows access to the microphone and camera of the user agent's machine, which is a powerful privilege escalation for HTTP content injection. This will remove that attack vector by only allowing it over HTTPS.
