I get the problem with both IE 11 and Edge. They say the 'certificate has expired' and warn me not to use the site. I can only report what I am getting from my machine - I don't have a smartphone - but it is unusual to get this with any internet site, no other sites that I have attempted to visit have prompted such a warning.

I use Google Chrome browser and get the same thing. I've had the "Not Secure" prompt in the top left-hand side of the web-site address for PW for a while now.

I've read that this is nothing to be concerned about, if you are familiar with the web-site.

Maybe Frank Baxter will see this thread and respond...

I agree - I'm not worried about it, more concerned that potential visitors will be put off using the site. The actual message, other than 'This site is not secure' is 'The website’s security certificate is not yet valid or has expired.
Error Code: DLG_FLAGS_SEC_CERT_DATE_INVALID.' Not the end of the world, but could be off-putting for some.

So, it turns out that I've turned off the warning in Safari for PW at some point in time. I opened PW in Firefox and see the warning.

What can I say? I trust PW. smile

Here is the header off the certificate that the pianoworld site is using, the problem is that it expired yesterday. I looked at some old threads and the same thing happened last year.

Subject: www.pianoworld.com

Issuer: RapidSSL RSA CA 2018

Expires on: Feb 25, 2019

Current date: Feb 26, 2019

Another thing: PianoWorld uses http protocol; not https.
Could it have something to do with it?


My grand piano is a Yamaha C2 SG.
My other Yamaha is an XMAX 300.

The non-forum part of the site is https. I think having a certificate and using https is more about search engine indexing than security here. PW collects no sensitive information. I would imagine the certificate will be renewed soon.

Shhh... I'm trying to lull everyone into complacency.

On a serious note, what I mean is that PW doesn't ask us for anything that hackers would be interested in: account numbers, etc.

Looks like the certificate has been extended for three more years.
