Not sure if this has always been the case but, I have noticed in recent weeks to the left of the web address, on a laptop and an android phone, that Chrome is alerting me that the website is not safe and secure!!

When I'm just browsing and logged-out - the black exclamation mark in a circle shows with Not secure.

I have deleted the bookmark on both devices and tried typing in http://www.onlybarnet.com which sends me to index.php and the same 'Not secure' icon appears. Also tried https://www.onlybarnet.com with the chrome 'This site can't be reached' page and this message: www.onlybarnet.com unexpectedly closed the connection.

When logged-in - red writing of Not secure and exclamation mark in a triangular, even whilst I am posting this.

Hi Buzzinbee. Various browsers have recently started showing the alert you mention for websites not using the encrypted 'https' protocol. OnlyBarnet has used http since day one and this remains the case today so don't worry, the site isn't any less secure than it used to be. Work is under way to move the site to https but as is often the case with the current hosts, this is far from straight forward and may take some time.
