Site security?

I have a question about when I log in. I notice that it says "http" and not "https" when I am logging in with my password.

This worries me as most sites have switched to secure log ins to protect people's password information and to minimize hacking.

Is there a secure option in our settings to choose? I have not been able to find one.

Thank you.

Thanks. I don't usually automatically bookmark the site. I just go to dslreports.com. Is there a secure log-in option from that page?

On the login page, click 'switch to secure login'.

Ok...I've had dslreports as my homepage for the longest time.
As of this morning, I am getting the following...see attachment.
I end up clicking on the 'not recommended' just to get in.
dslreports.com is in my Favorites>Security(with the https: ), I've even got »secure.dslreports.com listed too.
So why is this happening now?

That address should redirect (it does for me, at least) to

https://secure.dslreports.com/
 

Maybe that's the issue?

I think he's suggesting that you click for the 'more information' as per your screenshot.

You could just change to the secure address.
