Noticed recently whilst doing my PGPSW camera database updates to TT via135 through mydrive connect that the link flags up as NOT SECURE on my imac. Only noticed this after doing the update. Should I be worried?

If memory serves me correctly you're connecting directly to the satnav rather than an actual website. As such it won't have a certificate for SSL so will flag up as being 'insecure' - however, you're connected directly to it so there's nothing actually insecure about it.

I'm not sure what the link has to do with installing cameras onto a TomTom but it was too big a task to change every single link on the site and forum to from http to https so, instead, we do like practically every website in teh world does and use a .htaccess command to automatically redirect any http requests to the https equivalent. So even if you type in http://.... it will automatically redirect to https.
