HTTPS — a sense of virtual security

Postby Haruo » Sat Mar 28, 2020 9:02 pm

After several years in which various people have had problems with their internet security programs, like McAfee, warning us not to go to Baptist life.com because it is unsafe, the site, including the forums, has just been securitized with the URLs upgraded to https://. Yay! At least some viruses have been defeated before the end of Lent!

Well done. It made my browser very happy.

Mine too, initially, but a few minutes ago when I tried to link to here from the Facebook group, it wouldn't open this site, said the site couldn't be found or whatever. But now I can get in, so maybe it was a very temporary glitch.

For the first time in days, I succeeded in logging on just now as Haruo, on the laptop! I'll be interested to see if I can now be both of me here, and maybe also be Leland Bryant Ross on my phone.

I have problems if I don't use the right URL for this site. It has to be forums.baptistlife.com. If I go into Baptist life and then try to load the forum it doesn't work.
