Just to add even Australian Government websites such as the Australian Navy website show NOT SECURE as well so its not only shipspotting.

Hello Juergen,photos of a ship with tugs or bunker boats attached to it are not obstructed as such as they are working with the ship,but if the tugs or bunker boat were passing pass the ship and not assisting the ship yes the photo is obstructed.

As for Marine Traffic it does only one thing good and its good at it,live shipping map as for its photos well no comment  Wink

Just my thought, if the trees and landscape were not covered in snow would we be having this discussion ?.... probable not  Wink just because the trees are covered in snow doesn't make it any less obstructed.

Not on my PC... still getting this warning Not secure.
Hello Oldkayker,
We have already said in the old thread that websites with http now show up as not secure, it doesn't mean the site is not safe it only mean that passwords etc may not be secure.I  really cant see a issue with that as shipspotting doesn't have any of our personal info only a password to log on and a lot of members don't even use there real names as the site only asks for a user name.

A: I never have to travel for more than an hour to see a ship.. (20 minutes is the max, and exercising on the bike gives me ample opportunity to see more than one ship)
B: When I sit at the water the main purpose is to read a good book, interupted by occasional maritime passings)
C: I won't be carrying four kilo's of camera any time.
D: My mother always warned me not to talk to strangers.
E: Not that I remember.
F: I do like photography.

I see I'm not the only one that rides a bicycle to photograph ships. Grin

The HC- V770 is a nice camera Chris,It was one of the cameras I looked at to replace my Sony PJ-280.
I ended up getting the Sony AX-33 solely because of its 4K capability and itís balanced optical steadyshot which is second to none among compact video cameras.

The site is still rated as insecure by Google Chrome and this does not seems to be related to the use of login and passwords. Some other sites I visited are also rated as such while other displayed the padlock icon.
Also, when in the last days navigation through the site was back to normal, today it is very slow and I had some trouble to display the full screen pictures at first but the situation improved at a later time.
Hello Rarcand,

Google Chrome shows all http websites as Not Secure.It doesn't really mean that the site is unsafe as we have been using this configuration in the past .Software companies want websites owners to upgrade to https that's why Not Secure is showing in the ULR bar.This is the way I understand it from what I have read. I should add I,m no expert so I could be wrong !
