Great question!

I followed Laurafuller´s advice and tested my own website on the website she recommended. All was good except one thing and that was an outdated protocol that should have been disabled by June 30, 2018. The message from the test is:

" Protocols
You currently have TLSv1 enabled.
This version of TLS is being phased out. This warning won't break your padlock, however if you run an eCommerce site, PCI requirements state that TLSv1
must be disabled by June 30, 2018."

Anyone know about this?

At the begining of last year 2019 Google implemented a Secure Socket Link protocal if a site doesn't have an SSL you'll see that message it doesn't mean the site is dangereous or anything just be warned that any personal information you give is not encrypted

On WA you can make sure your SSL is on by checking your websites

Hello, When you put your URL in the browser you may see a padlock just left of your URL that is open. this means your site is not secure like the message says. It may be some image that you have loaded onto your site. Something is loading as HTTP instead of https.

Look for http://whynopadlock.com and test your URL. scroll down on the test and it will tell you what is causing the problem. If it is images then rename them and reload them. It may be that some image is png and jpg. I hope this fixes the problem for you.

If your Mum got that message after clicking a link to them on your blog then it's likely that the message refers to their website and is nothing to do with yours.
Personally I don't visit sites that are not https these days and I suspect most others don't either.
All the more reason to ensure all of our own sites are of the https variety and therefor secure which is what we get at WA of course!

I'm guessing that this is not your own website, Alyse. The only thing you can do is to inform the website owner and trust that they will take care of it.

If it is your site then this may help

Then the message is regarding the thrivemarket site, not yours.
