Quote from: djmiller on January 05, 2017, 08:31:41 AMThe increased security that I was referring to was (2) fold.1.) Of most concern was the data was not secure as it was a service that could be here today and gone tomorrow. That service at one time was free, like the original forum was, and then once upgraded it was a paid service, and then upon renewal the the price went up. Price was not as much as issue as the fact it was proprietary, and the data was at risk. Because it was a service provided by a third party it could be here today and gone tomorrow.2.)You may had noticed there was advertising on that site that displayed adds. Because it was on a forum that we paid for suggested we endorse those products.I personally run add blockers on any browser I use so they do not appear, but the fact that they were there in itself should tell you the security of your information is at risk and you are probably passing at the minimum your browsing habits and what your interests are. That is why for instance you may have just been on amazon looking at a new fancy gadget or phone and when you went to the forum you may have seen an advertisement that was for the same or similar item.
