As of January 2017, Google Chrome will display a "Not secure" message next to the address field in the Chrome browser if the user has accessed a page that includes a webform via an unsecured HTTP connection.

The following is an FAQ regarding HTTPS in Evanced products:
NOTE: Evanced software has always had forced HTTPS encryption on any and all Credit Card submission pages within all of our software offerings. These recommendations refer to the other pages within our software.
How does this effect my Evanced software?
What action do you recommend I take?
In every link to the Evanced software that uses the HTTP prefix (ex. http://demozonepublic.evanced.info/signup) we recommend that you add an "s" so that the link so that it reads: https://demozonepublic.evanced.info/signup doing so directs you to the secured access to our products
This recommended change would affect any URL access to the site and include the following:
What happens if I don't change anything and do not update my links to the HTTPS versions?
What happens when I use HTTPS URLs, but there is still unsecured content in the Evanced app (ex. a banner image hosted on the library server)?
Why are you recommending this now and what are the advantages of updating to HTTPS URLs?
1. Online Security standards are becoming more and more strict and browser updates will continue to enforce these higher standards. In fact, Google Chrome plans to use an even more overt warning message when accessing HTTP content later in 2017 (see example below) adhering to these best practices now helps keep you future-compatible and ensure the best experience for your users.
2. At some point Evanced will need to force all connections to our software under HTTPS (redirecting HTTP URLs). Changing your links and practices now will help ensure compatibility with that future state.
3. The changes above currently reflect Google Chromes updated alert messages when encountering HTTP content, and Google Chrome consistently rates as the most popular browser used to access our products
At what point will Evanced force all connections to their software to be HTTPS?
