    Anyone else getting this? Is there a problem with site cookies being sent and received? Domain change?

    If anyone can help with this or explain if they have received the same I would appreciate it.

    Using Firefox? It will give you that warning when you sign in if the page is not a secure page.

    Chrome primarily. I'm not sure I receive this when I visit the site on my tablet. I assume some of it is for ads and stuff, which I am not worried about. I'm worried about vulnerabilities to 3rd party.

    when you log in, make sure the address has 'http://' before the www. Add it if it isn't there.

    It's about Google Chrome they have introduced the Not Secure thing to all websites that are not encrypted, here are some articles, any website that is not HTTP encrypted can be hacked:

    Google Chrome Now Labels HTTP Sites as 'Not Secure'

    Chrome now marks all unencrypted websites as "not secure"

    Ah thanks. In fact, I have to add https:// the s is the encryption as I would find when I do my online banking. In fact https:// does show that the site is secure.
