Signing into TV Anywhere

I am new to TV Anywhere but when I try to sign in I get the following "The information you have entered on this page will be sent over an insecure connection and could be read by a third party.  Are you sure you want to send this information?". What does this mean and what do I need to do? Please note,  I use Firefox browser. Your help and advice will be much appreciated.

Re: Signing into TV Anywhere

Hi Phacer

 

Welcome to the community and thanks for posting.

 

Sorry to read that you're having an error message on Firefox when trying to sing into TV Anywhere.

 

Does this happen on just the TV Anywhere website or does it happen on other websites?

Have you had this error since you posted?

Does this occur if you tried another browser?

 

Hope to hear from you soon

Sam

Re: Signing into TV Anywhere

Hi Sam,

Thank you for your reply

It always happens when signing in to TV Anywhere (Firefox) and never when signing in elsewhere. It is still happening I'm afraid. I have looked at the settings in Firefox but I am none the wiser.

I tried Google Chrome which does not show the security message but goes into my virgin account, not TV Anywhere.

Hope you are able to throw a light on this.

Re: Signing into TV Anywhere

Hi Phacer,

 

Thanks for getting back to us, it sounds like a security feature with Firefox not liking the protocol for the connection.  TV Anywhere uses http, rather than https, which a lot of sites requiring login information do use.

 

Is there an 'OK' or 'Accept' option along with this warning?  It doesn't indicate a problem as such, and you should be able to bypass that warning message.  Let us know and we'll do what we can to help if that doesn't seem to be an option.

Re: Signing into TV Anywhere

I was going to start a new thread to ask why you cannot change the connection to https this has been happening for several years now.

As far as I understand, Yes it is a security feature and one that is there for good reason http is NOT secure, using this protocol a customers username and password are sent over an insecure connection to the server as plain text meaning anyone who wants to intercept the connection can read exactly what the customer types as it is not encrypted.

Because some other sites (and they are getting less and less) use the http connection does not make it acceptable.

No it doesn't indicate a problem just the fact the connection is not secure.
