    Default Why doesn't Basenotes have an SSL certificate to run HTTPS?

    This is highly insecure for all the wonderful users running swaps and deals via Basenotes' DM system, whose privacy can easily be compromised by anyone snooping. There's no excuse anymore now that Let's Encrypt offers free SSL certificates.

    Good to see you, MonkeyBars!

    Yes, Grant is going https. He's already transforming data for the new platform. Hoping we will hear the drop date soon. But you're right - http is basically in the clear. Scary!

    There is information scattered throughout the cited thread containing the following link, including the https answer. But this referenced post is the core one to look at:

    I think they should migrate to https sooner
