Atheist Forums is now HTTPS only.

Atheist Forums is now HTTPS only.
I have just reconfigured the forum so will now only run over HTTPS rather than allowing HTTP. This increases the security of the site for our users, and also helps protect user privacy. We have had HTTPS enabled for several years, but only 22% of requests to the site were made over HTTPS (as of earlier today). With the new configuration, this number should increase to near 100%. HTTP is still enabled, but users will get automatically redirected to the HTTPS version of the site.

As always, please report any bugs in the appropriate forum: https://atheistforums.org/forum-69.html

Thanks for the head's up, Tibs.

And I'm sure it should be noted that forum-69 is very different to area 69, lol.

Only problem I have is that my phone cannot establish a secure connection to AF, now.

Probably a phone setting somewhere or something to do with location.
Sanity adjacent.

Nice green "Secure" sign in the URL bar. One less thing to worry about. BZ

Works fine here with Android. But Valk probably has one of those snooty hipster iphones. Tongue

Nothing really seems different on my Samsung phone.

I mean that in a no issues here kind of way.

Also if your signature makes my scrolling mess up "you're tacky and I hate you."

Can confirm Android is the best.

Works fine.
"There remain four irreducible objections to religious faith: that it wholly misrepresents the origins of man and the cosmos, that because of this original error it manages to combine the maximum servility with the maximum of solipsism, that it is both the result and the cause of dangerous sexual repression, and that it is ultimately grounded on wish-thinking." ~Christopher Hitchens, god is not Great
