I don't quite understand what you may be saying, but, I can say this...the other day my wife said, "Hey, I am getting some of the neighbor's emails sent on my tablet." Yes, every once in a while I will receive the neighbor's sent email who lives right across the road. Even though it is supposed to be controlled by the Router code, it appears that his wire-less Router has enough power out that it can come into my incoming email - just once in a while, not all of the time. This is not uncommon. When my wife first bought her so-called WI-FI tablet, I asked her to walk up the road to see when her tablet would stop working and she got a long block away before it quit.
You may recall a few years ago when someone set in their car outside of a TARGET store and read all of their outgoing email with the customer's credit card numbers.
A while back a local high school kid told me that he is in the school's computer club and they have all learned how to 'Hack the web'. As to what extent their hacking can be done, I don't know. But one can buy 'PASSWORD' decoding programs for just a few dollars. Anyone that knows how can set up a receiver near some ones wire less router and then with a amplifying repeater go off anywhere and read the information.
And when one uses their Wi-Fi in some shop, it is for the whole world to see.

Sorry my new phones spell check changes words and I didn't read my post first. This forum is saying that the connection is not private and everytime I click on something it pops up and I have to go to advanced settings and allow the phone to go on the page. It started doing it today and said something about the websites certificate running out today.

There's nothing wrong. The SSL cert lapsed because I have no money to pay for it.

Your browser is just telling you. It has nothing to do with the forum software. Just without a cert, your browser is warning you that your connection might not be secure because it can't tell that it's being encrypted end to end.

Do you need help from the forum members to address the money issue?
