    Escouts now uses SSL

    Hi All
    As part of our ongoing commitment to providing a safe, secure environment, Escouts has purchased an SSL Certificate.
    What this means for you, the end user is that going forward, all your browsing traffic between your device and Escouts is encrypted (Much in the same way your bank does).
    This eliminates many potential attacks including people stealing your details on open/free wifi connections.
    SSL means that you will see you re forced to https:// instead of just http:// when visiting Escouts. We will soon be rolling this out to the Tapatalk client.

    If anyone has any questions - just ask!

    Thanks for your hard work Gavin, there have been lots of little quirks to iron out and you are diligently working down the list.

    Getting a too many redirects error for the wiki - is this related?

    Depends how many Chinese users we have. Apparently SHA-1 is the best that pre-Windows Genuine Advantage XP can manage :-)

    Tapatalk seems to have stopped working for me on both my devices...do I need to change a setting to enable SSL on there? Thanks.

    With Tapatalk on Android simply going back to the forum selection screen fixed things for me, and I guess that is indeed the equivalent of logging off and on again.

    Didn't work for me, I'll try completely clearing the Tapatalk cache and see if that does it, if it doesn't I will post again. Cheers.
