    connection not secure

    Lately when I log in, I get a pop-up saying the connection is not secure. Please explain.
    When you do things right, people won't be sure you've done anything at all.

    I started getting that message after a recent anti virus update.

    I suspect that your wifi connection is available to others in close proximity to your router. Neighbors for example. Use a password for your wifi connection.

    It depends on your browser. Firefox has taken it upon themselves to report whenever a link says https:, instead of just http:

    If you trust the site, just carry on.

    It has nothing to do with your provider or internet connection.

    Camper6 is right, it's a new browser behavior, nothing has changed on this forum recently.

    Secure connection (https) used to be used on sensitive websites only such as online banking, but more and more websites started to using it in recent years, Google wants to force all websites with login to use https, now they pop up a warning to punish websites that haven't moved to https.

Please reply to this thread with any new information or opinions.
