Site Security
« on: March 15, 2017, 01:12:57 PM »
I am not a computer genius....    That being said.  Is the fact that the stunthanger web address does not include an http:// marking make this site unsecured and if so does this also affect the stunthanger hobby shop page where I am apt to give my credit card or paypal info. ?   My concern originates from a message on stunthanger page that comes up when I click the sign in space.  This message says that the site is not secure and that signing on puts my personal info at risk.  If this is a problem the sites manager just has to change a small thing in the address.  Maybe  nothing to worry about.  Please let me know if you have any info.   Phil

Phil,

I keep little money in my PayPal. It's the ONLY way I pay for anything on the Web.

I have a close friend who is that computer genius. He designs applications and software. Makes a good living.

I've seen him hack Websites and Forums. He just plays, he never takes a site down, as he easily could, unlike other hackers.

You have good reason to NOT want to use a credit card on line. Soooooooooo, I would pay with PayPal and use a Bank account with limited funds, just to be sure.

I never have more than 200.00 in my PayPal bank acount. I just want to be sure.

Phil, no computer genius here, but I believe that secure sites use the https ?

I am fairly certain that when you pay on stunthanger hobby it is secure, message Robert and he will clear it up for certain.
That said, I use paypal as well, its been pretty well shown to be secure since you never actually transmit your info ( other than your paypal password but its encrypted)
For years the rat race had me going around in circles, Now I do it for fun!

It has been brought to my attention the the (s) in https:// is the security part of the address.  For whatever that is worth.  Thanks for the replies.
