No spots or alerts with Android Chrome


#1

Since days my spots and alerts will no be send by my Android Google Chrome browser. A warning pops up, saying the web site is unsecure.
I try to change the security setting, but it doesn’t solve the issue…

Any advice?

I changed over to using Opera and it cured a lot of issues. Unfortunately this doesn’t answer your question, but it might provide an option. After quite a few hassles, I now don’t use Chrome on any of my devices, both Android and Windows PC.

Is it Chrome just complaining that the site is only http and not https?

I have never used Chrome, you can’t block the adverts, so can’t offer more advice.

I just did a test with Chromium and it worked fine. It’s probably something for Jon @GM4ZFZ to look at the logs

Hi Chris,

Chrome is probably saying the site is not secure because the site doesn’t use https and doesn’t have a security certificate. This is a warning but it shouldn’t prevent you from using the site.

The new SOTAwatch is on https as will be the other SOTA web resources.

Now I tried to send my alert with Android Firefox.
No warning, everything looks good, but my alerts get lost in the nirvana.

I suspect this is additional checking that Jon may have introduced with recent updates to the backend of SW
