https:// for forum?

Post by Furchild » Sun Apr 02, 2017 3:36 pm

Hello,

Just joined the forum today. Have enjoyed visiting whatismyipaddress.com for years now.

A concern: Using the forum is via regular old http://, not https://. Therefore any passwords to this forum could, theoretically, be compromised by some third party on the Internet wires between my home computer and your server, because as I am sure you know, http:// gets sent cleartext on the wire, not encrypted.

Any plans to institute SSL/TLS on forums.whatismyipaddress.com?

Yes, we've had the forums https accessible in the past. With a recent infrastructure change we've had to roll that back. The plan is for all the WIMIA services to be SSL only later this year.
