No SSL cert on this Forum?

Recommended Posts

Hi, 

I'm a new member, and am a bit concerned that this site is not protected with an SSL certificate.  My browser settings go in high alert mode and tell me that this site is not safe.  Would seem appropriate for a forum of this nature would be a "safe" website.  Is there some reason why there is no SSL cert?  It isn't even that expensive.  Please advise.  Thanks.

Hi, 

from doing a bit of research over the time of using this forum, I know there used to be one however it was self signed meaning web browsers would freak out, now by the looks of it the server just downgrades the request to a normal non encrypted http request.

on a cyber security front its highly advised that you do not login to the site on public open networks (public wifi , coffee shops etc) I mean if your like me (super paranoid) even a home network seems unsecure.

honestly if your concerned about your privacy and the safety of your details(password, etc) maybe use a vpn hints it encrypts your traffic from your device before it goes across over the internet.

 

hope this is sorta helpful.

I have wondered this too.  There was one at one point, I don't know what happened.
