When I try to click on www.indianarotary.org I get a message that tells me the website is not secure and a circle with an i in it.  What does this mean?

Well, it works for me using Firefox on 64 bit Win 7

 

Computer ?  Browser ?  

 

The site does seem to be running http not https, this may be what is causing the problem depending on your browser and its security settings.

I get that from time to time, when you get that message, what are your options presented by the browser you're using?

In such a situation as this, I myself would always do a quick url scan with VirusTotal before progressing any further within the site itself. 


Im a rookie and purely recreational pc user. Im utterly obsessed with security (even though I consider myself a safe and law-abiding internet user!) and run a combo of the following freeware security suites.....

Windows Defender/firewall

Regular scans with Malwarebytes, AdwCleaner, JRT, HitmanPro

Evidently the issue is https vs. http.  My browser is Google Chrome and I'm using Outlook 2016 as my email program.  Is there a setting in Google where I can allow http websites to operate, assuming I know they are legit.

 

Thank you!

Isnt it because it doesnt have the Https// in front of it,therefore making it possibly a less secure connection?I think some security preferences react to that.

 

Rotary Club of Indiana :-:) Dont think its a problem,just means they havnt updated their site to the more standard and presumably more secure Https format .

Converting a web site from http to https takes a bit more programming, correct?

Yes thats my (limited) understanding,i think the later does take more work,some seem slow to change,i guess cos of the extra effort.

 

Evidently the issue is https vs. http.  My browser is Google Chrome and I'm using Outlook 2016 as my email program.  Is there a setting in Google where I can allow http websites to operate, assuming I know they are legit.

 

I think this is to do with using a proxy in your web settings,possibly in your browser..what browser are you using and does the site load if you try another browser.
