Default Insecure website

Hi
I'm now being told, via Firefox, that this website isn't secure. Can you do something about this please?

Hey FranksMum,

The gap in security your browser is pointing out is common on most sites, but Google/Firefox has decided to start highlighting it now. From what I know of it, it's telling you that the site is vulnerable to a MIM attack (or Man in the Middle), where someone intercepts what you are typing on the site. As far as i'm aware that is only an issue if you are using a public wifi.

All that said, we are going to be upgrading all our networks over the coming months to implement HTTPS to make our pages secure, so it'll just be a matter of time til you will no longer see that warning message. Your password is still encrypted so it's still secure.

Let us know if you have any other questions.

Cheers,
Natalie

Your browser probably updated sometime in between visits and that is why it only showed up then. I believe all browsers are starting to do this.
