Insecure site

When I logged in today - I was given a warning that this is an insecure site and advised not to continue.

Apparently the web address should begin with HTTPS and have a green 'lock' icon.

I have never seen this before - should I be worried ?

It's a security feature of W10 to warn you about sites without the s. Some forums have been going so long that often they don't have security features. You do not register a credit/debit card with KF so you are fine as long as you don't use the same password for this as for other sites where you do. The only other forum I, and some others here are on has recently upgraded to the s version.

I had the same thing with my BJH fan club site.
