Connection is not Secure


You might be wondering why Green Comet is reported as an insecure website even though it has gone SSL and has that reassuring “https” up there in the address. (Note the yellow triangle superimposed over the image of the lock.) There is no conflict in those two facts. Green Comet is secure and if you were to use a password to log in it would be encrypted. Your precious data would be hidden from that sneaky man-in-the-middle who apparently goes skulking about the internet stealing that information.


While the Green Comet website is secure, though, some of the links on it might not be. If an image links to an original on an unsecured website, for example. Or if any of the links on the page start with “http” instead of “https.”


Here’s what it looks like when there are no insecure links on the webpage. (Note: these pictures are taken using the Firefox web browser. Other browsers have other ways of indicating whether or not a web page is secure.)

So, do not fear. Your secrets are safe on Green Comet.

    Pheww! That’s a relief!
    I’d hate for the world to know that I can’t resist butterscotch on my ice cream or that I am a dog mindreader! 😉

      Whoa! Dog secrets. Well, we here at Green Comet are pledged to protect you from the International Inter-Species Telepathy Prevention League, who have been cracking down lately on this kind of mental miscegenation.
