To our SP Members:

It has been brought to my attention that some of you are getting security alerts when logging into Sugah's Place using Google Chrome, in particular.
(Thank you, Karen, aka Twerplina, for the heads up on this matter.   )

I have since done a bit of research and have learned this at Forumotion's website:

Dear users,

Since 2016, Google has decided to accelerate the transition to a more secure web by imposing the HTTPS standard.
This is a good thing for Internet users but is really complex to set up technically on big services like Forumotion!  

Google Chrome will display an alert for HTTP pages

Note that since January 2017, Google Chrome browser (version 56) could display a security alert on HTTP pages including a "Password" field. This will be a discrete indication with "Not secure" message that will be displayed in the address bar.

How does this affect Forumotion Forums?

On the discussion forums, members must log in by entering their username and password. This alert will not affect all HTTP pages, but only those that display a "password" field.

For Forumotion forums, this could typically occur on pages with a field asking to enter a password (eg Login widget, Quick login display).

Don't be afraid Having this alert does not mean that your forum is not secure. This is a simple indication dictated by the new standards imposed by the use of a secure connection protocol between the web server that hosts your forum and your web browser.


I hope this bit of information helps.
I am looking into seeing if there is anything in particular that I can do with our forum settings.

Thank you for being here at SP, as always,
Sugah

I haven't had it happen, either. Thanks for letting us know. If it does happen, I won't worry about it!

As you know, I did get this message, but I use Firefox. It's interesting to read the message that Forumotion provided, as it does differ in tone from the one FF gave.

Thanks very much for looking into this, Sugah.

I use firefox, too, and am getting a message. Seems to be no problem, though. I don't use my forumotion PW for any critical sites, anyway.

Word to all: Don't use the same PW for every site, vary them and now and then change them.
