Website Not Secure? [cannot erase from search logs]

Post by Georgesaker69 » Thu Jun 21, 2018 4:41 am

I don’t know if anyone else has this issue, but when I type in the url for the forum, Apple warns me the “Website Not Secure!”and it is highlited in red in my search bar. I didn’t think much of it since I’ve been using the forum for a few years now and I know it’s a safe sight. However I have noticed since this started happening I can’t clear WWGFA from my seeech history. I clear all my history for whenever and it all clears except for this sight. Anyone know what’s going on or having similar issues?

Odd that you can't clear it from your history. But I'm not sure that's due to the website security.

It is true that you get a security warning if you put https in front of the url ( but it shouldn't happen if you do it without ( (Click on each url to see the difference.)

Yeah, https:// (SSL) connections have become the standard in recent years, we don't have the means to get on that train. Real sensitive data (bank details, addresses) should best be exchanged via e-mail.
Nevertheless, a secure connection only covers what goes back and forth, not database breaches or server hacks/infecions. Unlikely we'll be targets though.

As for the search history: try shutting down your computer, then restarting after 40+ mins when the RAM memory has fully flushed itself. Just a suggestions, weird occurence although it does ring a bell somewhere... to be continued...?

I use private browsing on Safari to avoid history issues. Seems to work.
