    Not secure?

    Has neopets' connection always been not secure and I've just not noticed this until today or ios this a new problem and I should wait a bit?
    I'm trying to do my thing and I just noticed that the login screen has an insecure warning from the firefox?
    Is this new? Or an always thing?

    Only part of the site that uses HTTPS is the NC mall IIRC, neo has always used regular HTTP.

    Since Neo has a login under the normal HTTP protocol, this is considered to be unsafe with todays standards.

    And a recent update to FireFox will now flag these HTTP login pages as insecure. I mean, sure it's not a good practice but you are still fine. It's just like logging in a few years ago, no difference really. They should jump on to HTTPS, however.
