    Default "Not Secure" message in address line of my browser

    Any reason why I get a "not secure" message in the address bar of my browser(EDGE) whenever I am on mapletrader? And ideas how to fix it? I just tried using chrome and internet explorer and got the same result. Is mapletrader not secure? I am guessing its a setting that I need to change but I don't know what.

    I logged into Maple News and see that site is secure, https, shouldn't Maple Trader be that too?

    I think that refers to sites you might give personal info on, Maple trader does not have a secure site, but then you shouldn't give your CC number or any bank info or your SS #, all things that would not be secure. None of those are things you'd be giving on the Maple Trader anyways.

    Lots of sites that do not use https - not a big deal if there is no sensitive transfer of data. It's a function of the server and web site design. It's not big deal.
    2016 - helped at afriend with a small operation, 300+ taps. = hooked
    2017 - 20 taps @ home, 1 gal @ home on propane, then hauled to friends operation
    Bought a whole shack locally, with a Leader 1/2 Pint, moved it home

    I just copied a line from a web site that explains https vs http. Here it is, "You want your website to be secure for a number of reasons. Not only do you want to protect potentially sensitive information, but you’ll want to make sure that your visitors are comfortable browsing through your site." That's where I am coming from. I understand that the internet is complex and I don't know everything there is to know. That's why when I get a warning about an insecure site, I think twice about going there.

    And the comment that we don't enter passwords or credit card info, we do use a password to sign in and many users use the same password on multiple sites for simplicity. So you are saying that isn't a concern?

    Yes if you are using a common password and login where information is it's a concern. I do not, every site has different log in and passwords.
