RFD website not secure?

Posting for @yao416 He said he has not been able to log onto RFD for days.

All he sees is a message that said website is not secure. Browser in use is safari.

What could be causing the issue?

I went to check on my phone just now and I'm also seeing this message. After trying to log in I hit a 504 error page which is related to this issue. After 4 attempts I was able to log in. He should be able to get back in after a few tries as well.

I'll run this particular problem (website not secure) by the dev team tomorrow.

I've been having a similar problem. Intermittently RFD will say that I'm not logged in (and not allow me to vote, etc.) but in the top right corner it still shows my notifications (which I can't access when I click on it) and account options.

Same. Lots of timeouts and 'logged in but not really logged in' moments.
Could HAVE, not could OF. What does 'could of' even mean?

Server issues according to admins (there's another thread about logging in problems). I would add, as a wild guess, money issues. Hopefully it'll be all fixed by the time of the upcoming Prime Day sale.

The investigation into what's causing the 504 errors (which also causes the log in errors) is still ongoing. It's not an RFD server that is the source of the problem which is why it's taking longer than expected to fix. I'll try to get some form of update by tomorrow because we'll be busy next week for Prime Day.

It may be an ISP issue. I've noticed similar occurrences recently with cloud software I use at work. Frequent hangups for about 15-20 seconds at a time a few times an hour.
