Forum needs HTTPS to be secure for passwords
« on: 25 March 2022, 04:43:36 PM »
This forum does not appear to be encrypted with HTTPS (tried on Firefox and Safari using MacOS). I use strong, unique passwords, but that is not the norm and even for those of us with unique passwords it's still an unnecessary security risk.

There is zero reason for a website not to be encrypted in 2022, especially not one that is asking for passwords. For more information: https://blog.mozilla.org/tanvi/2016/01/28/no-more-passwords-over-http-please/

HTTPS can be obtained for free with Let's Encrypt https://letsencrypt.org/about/
