I may be wrong but the sketchUcation.com login is not secure as reported by the browser (see attached).
Can some one check and and fix this (or let me know if I'm wrong and why).
The SketchUcation site uses the Joomla Content Management system's authentication to log in users. This is a wide-spread and secure system. Your password is stored in a securely encrypted way at server-side.
At the sketchucation site the SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) protocol is not switched on at the moment. This is what your browser indicates displaying the "Not secure" indication. New versions of the browsers are getting more and more cautious about security so they are indicating if the SSL is not switched on at a login page. Taking into account the nature of the data what SketchUcation handles in my opinion SSL is not necessary. However because of the rigorous new browsers we might switch SSL on in the future.
