Site not secure!

Is this site not secure for a reason? Firefox is telling me it is not secure.
I get an insecure warning. Anyone?

I don't use Firefox but I bet it's complaining about sites that don't use https to encrypt traffic and validate that the site is genuine and not being spoofed.

In spite of everything, I still like Volkswagens.

All good here. No warnings when I viewed this thru Mozilla.

I do use Chrome as a regular browser. I also purge cookies etc regularly.

Care to provide a screen shot of this 'warning'?

It's a recent Firefox upgrade - I get no warning on this site but do on one other - using Windows 8.1.

Access via Bing was bringing up the Certificate thingummy a few days ago.

The only insecure thing about this site are the T3 and T4 owners who haven't got a low box in their off road armoury!

VW Touareg models are as follows:
Generation 1: T1 is model 7LA & facelift T2 is model 7L6
Generation 2: T3 is model 7P5 & facelift T4 is model 7P6
Generation 3: T5 is model CR7 [Not available in "VW Atlas" North America!]

Hahahaha. Nice one Noobs!
TorBrowser has not warned me of anything so I suppose it's good. This is the same group (autoguide) that took over the AlfaBB site that i have been on for a good 10 years or more as well and I have never had issues.

Because everyone (browser makers) are moving to HTTPS:// There might be a setting in your browser that is something like:

* Try to secure all traffic (disable)

That is the difference between you and me, I never go back to the carpet store.

Yeah, thanks. I tried that but it does not work for this site. yet...

States not encrypted site. It's the only site I have had this issue with. The other autoguide site: http://www.alfabb.com/ also is insecure.

The gap in security your browser is pointing out is common on most sites, but Google has decided to start highlighting it now. It's telling you that the site is vulnerable to a MIM attack (or Man in the Middle), where someone intercepts what you are typing on the site. Since everything you type here is view-able to all, this has never been a thing it made sense to protect against. As long as you aren't typing your password into a thread in plain text, or your bank info, this doesn't affect you.

All that said, we are going to be upgrade all our network over the coming months to HTTPS to make our pages secure.
