    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
    2018 - 50 taps, 9 on 3/16 gravity and 41 pails -14 gallons of good sweet stuff
    2019 - 27 taps, 17 on 3/16 gravity and 10 on pails - 12-3/4 gallons of good sweet stuff (most fun I've had with this hobby)

    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.

    "Your connection to this site isn't secure
    Don't enter any sensitive information on this site (for example, passwords or credit cards). It could be stolen by attackers." This is in the address line of most browsers when you are on Maple Trader. So be sure you don't use your password from here anywhere else.
