    I don't know if anyone else is getting this, but the latest round of browser updates is making it quite clear there isn't any encryption on the login process, with a nice big popup warning when entering the password telling users the website isn't secure :)

    I am not over worried as if someone does get a login all they can do is post abuse!

    No change....... :laugh:

    I think you should upgrade to HTTPS type of connection, at least for password input, not SSL as it is hacked long time ago, but TLS 1.2
    Apparently Google and Apple made some changes in January regarding sites that are not running under HTTPS and dropping them from search resuts.

    Adam just moved the site a while back,no doubt there are a few teething troubles along the way.

    Yes, I was referring to the HTTPS type connection, for which we still call the certificates used 'SSL Certificates', even though the connection itself as you rightly point out, should now use TLS protocols :)

    Non-HTTPS websites were indeed dropped in search engine rankings recently, as were non-mobile friendly ones, with other browser changes recently placing warnings on sites with certificates with lower bit encryption keys and going the step further to discourage users from being on websites that are out of date on security generally :)

    Happens to us all, my own site included!

    Hopefully noone uses the same email address and password on any other websites ;)

    I know many still use to call it "SSL connection" although they mean TLS instead, but I keep pointing out it is TLS because I cannot know if any really means SSL or TLS. Hope you do not mind.

    Sorry, wasn't meant to come across as a dig, just genuinely trying to help and throw some help/advice back to the community that gives so much!

    Depending on available options, they might get it for free, or I just bought a certificate for about £7, I'm happy to foot that bill if it helps :)

    That means you have some extra options on your 25, does it?
