    It is just telling you that it is not an HTTPS web url, which is a method were a third party verified that the site is not being routed to you through a nefarious listener who might log your activities. which you would definitely want if you are putting in credit card numbers, however the password for crackercoast is encrypted by the software.
    The thing is purchasing one of these institutional certificates, of the server while the cost has come down, is still account for over 1/3 the cost of hosting, If we had a stronger base of supportwe would add it but honestly its just not that imperative to the function of the forum .

    the browser alerts on interactive sites is a bit of a shake down in that it implies we are illegitimate in some fashion , supported by the fact that for extra fees your url can appear in green . and to understand just how invalid the sense of security is we just need to look at many of the big hacks that have happened to Adobe and Equifax.....


    Crackercoast is reasonably secure and I don't lose sleep worrying any state secrets are going to be revealed , If you are , just be sure you use a different password here than on things like bank accounts, which is a good idea anyhow.

    Default Not Secure message

    Just noticed, I'm getting a "Not secure" message when using this site. Not happening when using any other sites I visit.

    Could be on your end. Update your program, reboot, check your system's preferences and see if they are up to date. Virus and malware protection can be a funny thing. One minute it's fine and the next you're getting warnings for no reason. That happens to me sometimes and things need to be updated and checked periodically. That happened to me on one site and I shut it down and went in again and everything was normal.

    It is the site that provides the security. This is the only site that offers this message. Using Google.

    I have addressed this before, but the cost of security certificates is coming down so I may go ahead and convert.
