I have not suffered any recent hiccups, but since two days I am getting that red unsafe site warning sign, same as Derek Sands. So I am afraid that my password is susceptible here......

I am using Firefox and I do not get any warning whatsoever. Never did.

When I log on PC (using Edge) there is a note in address bar the reads... "Be careful here your connection to this website is not encrypted. This makes it easier for someone to steal sensitive information such as passwords".  I subscribe to Norton 360 with VPN and Malwarebytes premium, which work overtime when on site this. If I did not make exceptions (permissions) in browser to access this site I would not be able to log on. When I log-on site with mobile device the address bar reads "Not Secure" in red letters. It is my understanding site Tech folks have been working on "https" designation, for some time now. I wonder if they have an update as to their progress....?

IT have confirmed my belief, as also noted by ChasB46.
They do not signify any change in the security of Shipspotting.com, but changes and inconsistent approaches to standard warnings generated by browsers when encountering 'http' sites - note that Pieter is not getting the ongoing little sign (a padlock with a red line through it) that I get even though we are using the same browser; at the same time Dirk kindly sent me a couple of screen shots, which showed different forms of the message on consectutive days.

Just a quick check across the webpages I have opened in the last hour shows that amongst the http sites that show exactly the same "alert" are Equasis, SeatheShips, Clydeships, Crewlist.org, Danish Government Shipregister, RFA Historical Society.  This is not to be complacent but just to give a context.

Meanhile IT have confirmed "A change to HTTPS is on our roadmap for ShipSpotting and it is expected to be implemented in around 2 months from now."

@Andrecas.  The old IT set-up indeed said it was "on the job" but actually never did anything.

Monday afternoon in Western Australia and the site appears to be very slow, taking many minutes to load a picture or shift to a different section. User activity doesn't appear to be high but site access is sluggish.

I'm having no problems in UK. As fast as usual. Instant thumbnails etc.
Checked ...My message hit the "Home" page quicker than I could.
