Enabling HTTPS

Would it be possible to enable HTTPS on this site? I often use public Wi-Fi so all my Clio chat (and passwords) would be broadcast to anyone in range. Even on encrypted Wi-Fi the data would be bouncing around the internets in cleartext.

You could use an encrypted VPN :smiley:

The point is that having a valid cert means users can trust that the content they see on their devices comes from the clio200 servers. Without that, it means a man in the middle could inject malicious code into the response, even something as simple hijacking a link on the forum to take you to a fake version of Amazon for example where you might enter your card details.

SSL certs are free and easy to set up these days: https://letsencrypt.org

Here's an interesting read about NatWest and their lack of SSL certs which should clear up some misconceptions: https://www.troyhunt.com/im-sorry-you-feel-this-way-natwest-but-https-on-your-landing-page-is-important/

I'm new to the forum but am buying my first 200 next week, so don't hold this post against me!
