Have you recently seen unsecure login warnings when logging in to websites you frequently visit? This could be your own business WordPress website, or other websites you use often.
The warning appears when you try to log in to the site and reads:
This connection is not secure. Logins entered here could be compromised.
Do you need to worry about keeping your login information safe?
If you are on a private internet connection, then you don’t have much to worry about.
If you are logging into your website on a public wifi connection, however, at a coffee shop or train station for example, then you should be more cautious.
To keep your information safe, InsideOut Solutions recommends not sending passwords over unsecured networks.
If the website you are logging into has HTTPS secure hosting, then you should be fine to log into it from any internet connection. You can tell if a site is secure by looking in the address bar. If the site’s URL (web address) starts with “https” and shows a green lock, it’s secure.
What can InsideOut do to help with unsecure login warnings?
InsideOut Solutions offers secure WordPress hosting for an extra fee. Once your site has been upgraded to secure hosting, you will no longer have to worry about getting these unsecure login warnings in your web browser.
