    I tried to get onto PinPics about an hour ago and no luck. This is what showed up. Is anyone else having the same trouble?

    My Sister and I just signed in on two different computers, and we got in just fine.

    One thing to check is if your anti-virus got an update and you need to adjust settings. This happened to me one time with several sites that I was used to using a lot.

    PinPics is not a secure site. It is not an https site. So it has no encryption protections on it.
    Your anti-virus may be flagging it as an unsafe site to be visiting. You can probably add PinPics to a safe list if it keeps happening.

    On PinPics, do not message anyone personal information. I also have a password there that I do not use for any other site I visit.

    "What Makes a Site “Not Secure”?
    The “Not Secure” next to a URL means the site is has no encryption to protect the connection or privacy of its visitors. This means that if someone were to put in any sensitive information on the site, it can be stolen by attackers. The encryption adds a layer of security that helps protect any sensitive information entered on the website.

    Let’s say a potential client visits a “Not Secure” site looking for legal help and decides to fill out a contact form on the website. Here, they enter their email, address, date of birth or any other information asked. This information can be stolen by a hacker or intercepted if the visitor is on a public network. Aside from the risks imposed on potential clients, it’s a big red flag for anyone considering that firm."

    Why Does My Firm’s Site Say “Not Secure”?

    I thought I would try Chrome instead of Edge and I got through no problem. Then I updated to the "NEW" Edge and that worked too. I guess it was time to update my browsers :p. @Tonka Toy I did not even notice that it wasn't secure. Thank you.

    This is why I bugged Ryan to make sure PTDB was secure (it wasn't for some time)...

    OK, on a (related?) different note: Is pinpics down? I can't get it to open, and I came to DPF to see if this could be confirmed...

    Hmm, I’m able to log in on my phone but it’s been going down intermittently for a lot of people. Try deleting your browser’s cookie cache and see if it will reload.

    OK, weirdness explained (?). My browser used //pinpics.com/ and it didn't work. But if I typed 'www.' before it, it worked. Don't know why...

    It used to be that both worked but recently I noticed that only one of them works. @GreyWyvern
    explained this once, but I don't remember exactly why it happens.
