Here is a reminder from Ann at Fret Not Yourself --

Yet Another Plea to Make the Internet Safer
I sound like a broken record but... After six years, there are still people who haven't set their blogs to https. What a shame. There's a simple way to start if you use Blogger. Look at the top right of your blog and click Design. Then chose the Settings tab and then Basic. Toggle "Yes" on HTTPS Redirect. That will send people to this much, much safer way to access your blog.

Http is an outdated protocol allowing hackers to change your content, redirect people to a bogus site, and steal identity and credit information. {Some of us have clicked a link and gotten a porn site instead.} Here's more information on why you should definitely switch to https.

How do you tell if a website is secure? It has a lock icon before the address. Keep yourself and your readers safe. Don't go to any site {including the famous quilters who haven't addressed this basic safety issue} unless you are willing to risk exposing your personal and financial information to every malicious hacker in the world. I NEVER go to any site that hasn't got this simple, effective safeguard.  Whether you're selling something or just writing, if you want me to read your blog, it has to be https.

Please check and see if you have the lock icon and if you don't, make your blog safe!

You've found a great fabric for 50-59F.
Thank you for the reminder, I changed my blog long ago and hope others will, too.

Thanks for helping get the word out, Pamela.

I thought there was much more to this process than clicking a setting. Thanks for the information.

Love blues, and even one green day! I hope you get to go out and enjoy the warmer weather a little.

If I really need something from a site not using https (like old blogs that aven't been updated in a long time), I'll do it in a virtual machine that protects my computer. I really don't understand why some people won't take that simple step!
