Insecure Website

My computer always warns me that Wet Canvas is an "insecure website." I am very aware of websites and never open a link I do not know. Nonetheless, this concerns me. Does anybody else get this? Should I be worried? Is there anything to be done. I realize this is a public site but I do not get the warning anywhere else.

Re: Insecure Website

Karl this has been debated through Palette Talk and it usually affects those using Chrome,and according to Doug,who has spoken to the technical people we are not in danger....Yes I have it every time too.

Re: Insecure Website

Thank you, Goeff. I do use Chrome. One thing less to worry about.

Re: Insecure Website

I use Safari, so I guess Chrome is not as trusting.

Re: Insecure Website

Firefox on my Linux Mint Mate OS shows it too, but I log in anyway.
Could be because WC doesn't use the more secure HTTPS .

Re: Insecure Website

I get this on Firefox and from Kaspersky, something to do with certificates being non existant or out of date.

Re: Insecure Website

I get no reports from Windows Defender or Malwarebytes, but I'm not surprised it is a very old forum.

Re: Insecure Website

I posted this when I encountered the same problem last year.

Re: Insecure Website

I only get it on my PC which is Chrome based, none of my tablets, iPods etc have a similar banner.
