Forum switched to https only
« on: January 24, 2017, 12:43:12 am »
Got this from Google today (note the year in the date):

Quote
Nonsecure Collection of Passwords will trigger warnings in Chrome 56 for http://www.aqua-mail.com/

To: owner of http://www.aqua-mail.com/

Beginning in January 2017, Chrome (version 56 and later) will mark pages that collect passwords or credit card details as “Not Secure” unless the pages are served over HTTPS.

The following URLs include input fields for passwords or credit card details that will trigger the new Chrome warning. Review these examples to see where these warnings will appear, and so you can take action to help protect users’ data. The list is not exhaustive.

http://www.aqua-mail.com/forum/index.php?topic=1306.0

The new warning is the first stage of a long-term plan to mark all pages served over the non-encrypted HTTP protocol as “Not Secure”.

Here’s how to fix this problem:

Use HTTPS pages to collect sensitive information

To prevent the “Not Secure” notification from appearing when Chrome users visit your site, move collection of password and credit card input fields to pages served using the HTTPS protocol.

And therefore, the forum now runs on https only and redirects http to https.

I wonder if this is having some effect on the ability of Tapatalk to connect. I just tried to connect using ver. 2.4.15 and it failed; previously no problem.

Should be fixed, please try now.

( Had to update the 'forum link' in tapatalk site admin settings to https... It can't follow redirects, it seems... )

It did. That's why I switched to using a browser for this forum. Much happier now. Would not go back.
