Has anyone seen this before?
Website is HTTPS (and has been for some time) but in GA it wasn't connected to GSC only HTTP. 
Connected to HTTPS and bounce rate increase over 20% for both direct and organic. 
While the site has HTTPS there is a search form that it doesn't passes through a secure channel so most browsers aren't recognizing it as fully "SECURE" so the question is due to the GSC -> GA with HTTPS be the reason for the increase BR?
