Lately, I have been getting the term “Not Secure —” in front of “wordorigins.org”. Do I have anything to fear?

No. There are no financial or monetary transactions going on here. No one is exchanging confidential information. There’s no private information that would be valuable to hackers. (If you use the same password as you do for secure sites, you might want to change it, though.)

There is a long overdue overhaul to the underlying system that is needed. Fixing it so it uses the Https encryption is part of that.

Thanks. I figured that would be the case.
