Re: Bt home hub unsecure site

There are notes here from Mozilla on unsecure website warnings:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/what-does-your-connection-is-not-secure-mean

It should enable you to diagnose exactly why this happening if you are using the Firefox browser (similar info exists for other browsers).

If you post back with the underlying error, that'd be helpful towards getting a fix or workaround. It'd also be helpful to know which router and firmware you have, the browser, etc. 

Cheers

Because the Hub management page doesn't support HTTPS. It doesn't really need to as it is only accessible on the LAN and not via the internet.

However, you would have thought BT would have implemented HTTPS as most browsers these days complain if the site doesn't support it.
