Hello,

Yes this is due to not having https on the forum. I wouldn't worry about it too much, your forum is secure and the information on it is too. The warning is simply letting you know the site doesn't have an ssl certificate and the forum isnt https.

Your forum is safe and secure, however, if you want to stop the message from happening, then you can do so by purchasing a package and enabling ssl certificate.

Hello @doriforiki and welcome to the English support forum Shake 

I will be happy to try and help you today.

Your problem looks to be coming from your address /URL as you don't have SSL certificate this tells browsers your site is not safe. This is not 100% true your forum and all it's data is safe and so are your members.

Google and other browsers now request you add this new SSL certificate (It's Not a Must)
Sadly the new SSL certificate is not free to everyone and if you would like to take a look what this has to offer then you could read the following.




Can you please take a screen shot of any warnings your are getting so we can try and help more.

Best regards.

APE.

The SSL Certificate requires you to have all links and all images with links that are also safe and under the
Code:
https
. If at least one image or one link on your forum or your messages does not have the
Code:
https
start, then your browser will give you this warning.

Therefore, you have to change all of the images and the links on your forum to links that have the
Code:
https
start.

Regards.
