I sometimes get this message, ‘Website insecure’ in red print at the top of my iPad as I log in. I ignore it and the login seems to work fine. Is it just me?

I use an Ipad sometimes to log in, and I don't get that message, so I reckon it must be you. Although it may just mean that if your providing private details, card numbers and the like, that the site isn't secure from that viewpoint, but as you don't or shouldn't give out your credit card details to all and sundry here, its not necessary for it to be secure.

The web site is marked as insecure. I don't quite know what that means other than whatever data that is held on the site can be extracted if you know how.

Nothing to do with the data, it's just the log in process. The Site is not https:// and modern Browsers pick up on the login form and warn you that the Site is insecure in case you are dealing with financial transactions etc.

NOTE:-

Any financial transactions undertaken from this Site are done through PayPal (which I would hope is secure) and not directly on our Site.

Thanks Piquet, I have since had a read on the apple tech help site and everything you say makes sense. I can relax.

Isn't that what I said, though maybe not as eloquently?
