Some browers (Chrome?) are starting to do that but all it means is that the traffic from the site to your browser is not encrypted so as merv says, don't put card details or other sensitive personal information in. It doesn't mean the site's been hacked or data leaked or anything like that.

Admins: It's becoming the norm to use HTTPS for all sites and I've started using LetsEncrypt for those I host so drop me a pm if you want some help or advice in that respect.

Thanks, didn't think there was a major problem but thought I'd flag it up anyway.

I'll check with the host of this site, http://www.host4africa.com/ if that can switch the hosting to https.
