Site "not secure"

Recommended Posts

I've noticed for a while now that this website has been displaying as "not secure", i.e. passwords, sensitive info, etc., could be easily stolen by hackers.  Is this something that will be addressed at some point?  Hopefully members here are not using the same password across multiple sites, otherwise... uh oh..?

Not seeing this myself; what browser do you use? And where is the message coming from? (the browser or your AV software).

Mine is showing this too. I use Google Chrome.

It comes up in the address bar.

Yes, it's showing in the address bar at the top.  Left click on it and it tells you that the site is vulnerable to hacking.  I use Opera.

It's because if you have google chrome version 68 or later it shows a 'not secure' warning when the site doesn't have an ssl certificate. Not having the certificate means information that goes through this site isn't encrypted, so it wouldn't be safe to share card details here, for example, because it's less difficult for someone to access information shared through the site. The software we use does have it's own security to keep your accounts safe and, to the best of my knowledge, that includes the passwords you might se for your account (although I'm happy to look further into how they secure that information). An ssl certificate would cost an extra £60 a year, on top of the software, hosting and domain renewal costs, and I honestly just can't afford to do that right now.
