    Firefox keeps warning GTT site is not secure

    Recently I've started receiving a message from Firefox stating that I'm logging into an unsecured site when I go to GTT. What gives with that??

    There is a big push on right now for sites to switch from using the "http" protocol for web sites to using "https". That's the "secure" version of the same protocol. GTT is still using the old http.

    Did your Firefox browser get updated recently? Maybe they slipped something in to pop up a warning if the web site isn't using https?

    Yup, Firefox was updated recently...but, then, Firefox seems to be updating all the time. So, is GTT secure in it's present format...or not?

    AS secure as it ever has been. Basically the difference between http and https means our transactions (http) to the site can be read by anybody. Well... this a public forum so I have no issue with that.

    There is more but the super basics is that http means that your internet provider 1. Knows you've connected to GTT and 2. They know what you search for and post or the content of private messages, etc. If it were https, 1. Your internet provider would know you connected to GTT and 2. They would not know what you send or post at all.

    Yes, GTT is ok. It is a public website and what you post is for all to see.

    I use Firefart (Firefox) and I haven't been getting that message with GTT.
    I have more ideas than ambition.

    We will be adding https to the site in the near future, though I don't have an official ETA on that yet. It's always been on the "wish list", but now that browsers and Google are flagging sites that don't use it, it got moved up in priority so we can maintain our reputation as being a "Safe Site"

    Hey guys,

    Like the others mentioned, the site is still secure. All browsers will eventually catch up with this warning. I believe eventually we will be moving to https but we don't have a timeline for that yet.
