Hi everyone,

Tomorrow morning, Mumsnet will be moving from HTTP to HTTPS across the entire site. For those who are interested, HTTPS is the secure version of HTTP, the protocol over which data is sent between your browser and the website that you are connected to. The 'S' at the end of HTTPS stands for 'secure' - it means that all communications between your browser and the website are completely encrypted.

When the move happens the site may be down for a short time, but this is absolutely nothing to worry about; no-one's individual security will be affected in any way. Once we're back up, you shouldn't notice anything different at all, but if you do experience any issues with the site we'd really appreciate it if you could feedback on this thread.

Thanks for your help. flowers

Thank you for the 'heads up', Katherine.

Good luck to the Tech team and hope that it all works seamlessly.

Oh - and PS - MNHQ, it might be a good idea to 'sticky' this thread here in Site Stuff and probably in Chat and AIBU too. Otherwise there'll be loads of complaining threads if the changeover takes longer than expected grin

Thanks for the 'heads up', Katherine. (And I second what Fru said - sticky for a short time, anyway.)

Hi everyone. We've made the move to https, but will be working on resolving outstanding issues over the next few days. We are aware that you won't see the full green padlock icon on all pages yet because some elements of the page will still be http, but we are working on fixing those as a matter of priority. Thanks for your patience and feedback.

I can't use the app this morning, despite restarting my iPhone 7, iOS 10.2.1.
Has this anything to do with anything?

WhatchaMaCalllit Thu 26-Jan-17 07:55:24

Very smooth transition there MN techies. Nice one!

HelpMeHelpDS Thu 26-Jan-17 08:00:02

Ah the app suddenly sprung back into life now!

MrsHathaway Thu 26-Jan-17 08:05:51

Just quietly working with a green padlock this morning.

brew for Tech's nerves.

Ah maybe this explains why now I don't get the mobile version on my phone but the full website which unfortunately is hideous to read on a small screen definitely not blind as a bat
Hope it's fixed up soon smile

Moped I've just checked- I can switch between mobile and desktop sites by clicking on the mobile site/ desktop site at the bottom of the page. 👇

BathshebaDarkstone Thu 26-Jan-17 10:04:55

PortiaCastis Thu 26-Jan-17 10:08:58

Green padlock and everything is faster, no probs to report.
Using chrome on android tablet.

All secure here, thanks MNHQ

AND it seems you have fed your hamsters because site is infinitely quicker than it has been of late.

cozietoesie Thu 26-Jan-17 12:50:09

I'm afraid I didn't even notice the change! grin

Well done, Tech.

LineysRun Thu 26-Jan-17 12:55:30

It's all fine here, at the moment. Thanks.

Bathsheba, this thread was started yesterday afternoon - hopefully the lovely Techs are nearly 'done & dusted' by now grin
