    I did try that and the condom broke. The reason I was paranoid is because I have had my network hacked. I realize any information you put on a public forum is then forever public information.

    America was founded by tough hell-raisers. Rugged citizens who evaded taxes, spoke strongly against tyranny, grew tobacco, brewed beer, distilled spirits, and smuggled weapons. And it will be saved by those same types of citizens.

    Using plain HTTP means that your password is transmitted over the network in plain text. The only consequence of this is that someone who controls a router between you and TN could discover your password and impersonate you on this site. If you're using the same password elsewhere... don't do that! You should never reuse passwords even on HTTPS sites.

    Why pay $100 a year for a secure site when you don't need it.
    Yep, Hillary felt the same way.

    my search bar? This is the only website that does it that I can tell Tutuapp 9Apps ShowBox I don't like it but am I just paranoid or does anyone else worry about that type of thing? It really bothers me, someone please explain.

    You are indeed being paranoid. About all that an HTTPS URL would do is to encrypt your password so it isn't transmitted as plain text over the Internet. That is not something I am terribly concerned about when accessing a metal detecting forum, since everything you post on this forum is already readable to anyone else.

    Those three websites you mentioned (or, actually, linked to) are hardly the only HTTPS sites out there, though. If your bank and your doctor's office's portal are not HTTPS, you'd better get worried about that.

    If you are still concerned about it, consider using the HTTPS Everywhere browser add-on: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HTTPS_Everywhere
