Not Secure in address bar
« on: August 07, 2019, 06:46:17 AM »
When I visit the Griswold forums I get a message in the address bar indicating the site is Not Secure, There is a little circle with an exclamation point and Not secure in grey color when viewing but when I go to post a message the circle becomes a triangle with exclamation point and Not Secure turns red.

Is anyone else getting this message, This is the only website that I get this message on.

This is NOTHING  to worry about as we do not use encryption as we donít handle credit cards on this site. We use HTTP and not HTTPS, which demands a secure site.

I had a similar problem after a series of Microsoft upgrades.  I went to my history list and found the WAGS address from a previous visit, and went right to the WAGS site.  I was really worried that I was going to be unable to get my daily CI fix, but now all is well.  I don't know if this will help, but it works for me.
