    With facebook going with a security browser using the "https" just curious if stratics will go that way? I notice uogamecodes.com has no such security on it's site.

    Dare I ask why this forum would need to use https?
     
  4. Why ... for the same reason AS facebook:

    Facebook's decision to make full-session encryption a default setting for all users will remove the burden from those that are less aware of Wi-Fi hackers.

    The Facebook Setting You Should Change as Quickly as Possible

    *facepalm smear* :lol: the webs is a dangerous place ...

    Well I only thought about stratics and the https because of the attacks a while back on stratics. Even though the attacks were not hacking in nature it was still attacks. You never know what a hacker may be looking for even from a gaming forum. Since stratics does not do cash transactions on their site there would be no need. Just a security measure if anything.

    Without going into detail, the attacks on Stratics earlier would not have been stopped by a secured (https) connection.

    I read that the S in hhtps means that any information sent from your computer to the https computer is scrambled.

    So S stands for whatever you type and send to an https site being Secure.

    Sometimes an https site will have a red slash through the S in the address, I suppose that means it isn't secure.

    Usually refreshing the page fixes that.

    It is only needed when you need to send sensitive information over the net.

    So https is needed for online banking or buying, but not needed to log into Stratics.
