I've been getting this message today:

I changed my password and I'm using Chrome at the moment. Anyone else having similar issues?

Nothing to worry about. Surprised chrome isn't giving the same error.

It's just because the site is http, and not https, but it's asking for a log-in.

Over the last few days, both Chrome and FF are warning of non-encrypted connections.

Just tell it to allow the exception, all is good.

Don't use HTTPS when connecting to KW. The web site certificate is beyond mere bad. Decent browsers won't have anything to do with it - to them it looks like a drooling wolf wearing sheep-shaped sunglasses.

Good to know. Thanks! I don't usually use https for KW, but Firefox recommended trying.

I think it will now warn whether you try to connect via it or not.

Not that difficult actually. Let's Encrypt provides free SSL certs, so it can be done.
