The forum and website are now showing up not secure warnings on browser, meaning there may be a risk of passwords being compromised.

Might be important to be aware of for anyone that doesnt use a unique labby password to anything else they use a similar username for.

Perhaps a new website/forum host is needed?

It is because some web browsers (Google Chrome and others will probably follow) changed the way they display information on a website. If you connect to a website without using encryption (HTTP instead of HTTPS) it shows "Not Secure" on the left of the URL. This doesnt mean anything has changed on the server side.

Thanks,
