    Default This connection is not private

    When trying to access the site, I get this message. What’s going on?

    Anyone else experiencing this?

    Apparently there can be innocuous explanations for it. Check out this article and the user solutions: https://whatsabyte.com/featured/your...s-not-private/

    I don't get that message. However, every time I search something, I get a message that says, " Security Warning The information you have entered on this page will be sent over an unsecured connection and may be seen by a third party. Are you sure you want to continue?" I always say yes, because it's always something like 'catnip rinse' with no private information.

    I did get the connection not secure message a lot on a different computer for a lot of sites. Turns out, it was because the clock on my computer was wrong, so my computer was getting wigged out about being sent Messages From The Future (or Past). Real easy fix.

    Are you using a public internet connection? I've gotten that message before when the internet has restrictions on it (aka restricts access to non-work etc sites).

    I have been getting this message a while now from around June, even this week. However last week was fine.

    Edit: I'm on my phone.

    If you (or your browser) is not using ssl (https) you might get that message. (SSL or HTTPS prevents evesdropping from computers between your computer and the one you are connecting with, in this case LHC.) You might also get such a message if LHC's security certificate expires and they haven't renewed it yet. Or, you might get that message, because someone else is impersonating LHC, perhaps to evesdrop as you tell your deepest secrets. Probably nobody is going to do the latter intentionally (the bad guys don't really care if you rinse with coconut water), but it could happen accidentally, like if they're evesdropping on everything you do (maybe waiting for you to log into your bank, or divulge what a bad toupee the US President has).

    Thanks for the suggestions! I will try them.

    I don't get this on my phone, but on my laptop.

    Still the same issue as described before in another thread.
    When clicking in gmail on threadsubsriptionlinks to LHC I get the "Suspicious link" warning again.
    It was away for a few weeks, but started to appear again as of yesterday.
