My address bar now says (Not secure) It use to say (https) in Gixen.
Whats up with that?

Thanks
Bob

Your credentials are sent securely, which is what matters.

If you have a Mirror subscription Gixen also keeps using the https (secure) protocol after you log in. If not it doesn't because hosting adverts precludes it's use, that doesn't make the site insecure though.

I don't think this has changed for a long time, if you are seeing a difference it's probably due to an update to your browser software, which browser do you use ?

Hey Mark I use Chrome. Im not great at computer stuff I just do what it says.
Its red and says do not enter passwords and stuff etc.
Im 99% sure it was secure (https) I hardly ever see this but on "girl" sites LOL.
As much as I use Gixen I would of noticed if it was Not secure before.

Thanks

The Gixen software hasn't changed Bob.

Your credentials are sent securely, and that is what matters. What I'm saying is, it is secure, when it needs to be.

It's not quite that simple - any HTTP connection is at risk (albeit small) of being intercepted and, for example, serving malware to the browser requesting the connection.

This is why all the major browsers are moving to a position where they are flagging up any non-HTTPS connection as "insecure".

The performance overhead of using HTTPS over HTTP is quite small, and there's really no good excuse for any web site not to be using (exclusively) HTTPS these days.
