this is the message I get on the log in page, is it corrupted?
I have started to get this message on many login pages on various sites, Ii think it is the browser ( I use opera) just covering itself, and then it tries to sell you some security software, using some different browsers, the warning does not appear.
It’s getting more common with Firefox and Chrome. Trying to ensure all sites purchase ssl certificates etc when not really needed.
Seeing as most of the recent huge data breaches have been attacks on so called secure technology companies.
Only time it’s important to be sure it’s a https Page is when entering passwords and financial info.
thanks fella's, i'll just ignore that then
Also a good extension for your browser is called HTTPS everywhere .
Make sure it's the one provided by the EFF (electronic frontier Foundation)
This extension will "force" secure pages on almost every website you go to.
Green padlock on the address bar as standard.
Not only good to encrypt communications on public networks but also to protect log-ins and general privacy practices.
It will also check the encryption certificates are valid and trustworthy.
Whilst you're at it "privacy Badger" from the EFF is also excellent to block all the pesky ads and unwanted marketing trackers .
Geek rant over ...
Pretty sure that LetsEncrypt, issues these SSL certificates for next to nothing ...
Worth a try ?
I struggle to open the toothpaste mate let alone get my head around that! Sometimes envy you tech heads
All the main pages of the site are https and secure, there's a few errant images etc that get pulled in from other places and stuff like that, these get flagged sometimes. We're gradually identifying these things and sorting them out but there's no easy way of doing it. A few months ago some members struggled to login and links would go to unavailable pages etc, that was when we moves everything to https.
