Security warning at sign-in

Postby Marie » Thu Apr 06, 2017 11:56 pm

Had trouble logging in earlier today. A browser security warning blocked the way.

The warning appeared b/c my browser (Firefox) has upgraded to the new HTTPS secure communication protocol, and it cautioned that passwords in this forum no longer enjoy the securest protection without the new protocol.

(Checking other sites where I have saved passwords, I found that they all use HTTPS now.)

I figured out a way to log in by clearing the cache and bringing up a new browser, but that strategy is admittedly unsafe and besides, it only lasts a short time until the warning reappears, again barring the way.

What we need is for the service which hosts this forum to upgrade to HTTPS. Then we won't have to worry about having our personal info stolen by hackers.

Could this be looked into, please?
