excuse my ignorance but what is the "green lock" and how do i get it
thanks

DetailingWorld is technically insecure because they don't use/force HTTPS which is a more secure method of surfing. It won't post any direct danger (by detailing world themselves) but you are exposed to a man-in-the-middle attack as you're sending login details via regular HTTP (insecure).

HTTPS is now the standard and Google in fact penalise the SEO of websites not using HTTPS so google Chrome is pretty adamant at telling you when a site doesn't use HTTPS.

There's no reason why DetailingWorld shouldn't have HTTPS enabled and forced, SSL (secure socks layer, the S in HTTPS) is free via Let's Encrypt, so there's no cost or trouble encountered.

Time to get on to it guys.

The green lock can't be 'got', it's under the control of the site you're visiting. Green locks are worth looking out for though as any login information sent is being done so in an insecure manner and ripe for the taking.

I use a Chrome addon called HTTPS Everywhere. Install and forget. Seems to do the job:

the green padlock symbol will appear in the same area that says "not secure" usually to the left of the address bar. as others have said its down to whoever owns the site though, not the user.

If its a shopping site or a bank or anything like that then you should definitely see a green padlock, something like a forum i wouldn't worry, there is very little on here that isn't in the public domain anyway.

If you click through to the shopping section of detailingworld that is secure & shows the green padlock

But for the effort involved if it were my forum i'd just get it anyway.

Block all cookies and if and when there is an issue, unblock to access and then block again.
Empty the history as often as possible.
Any site states Agree and continue, do not and select terms and find where you can disable all big list of sites that they try and stop you disabling.
the majority of sites do not make it easy, some plain double confusing to stop, but try.
Lastly, best not divulge too much private info, the world is getting it.
This is not paranoia, its not wanting to share your info unless you decide.
Just can't understand why people want to tell people their business, directly on public forum or indirectly.
We can't stop it all, but can stop a lot if you can be arsed.
