    "I discovered at home on the PC, a warning in the adress of our NavList."

    It's nothing to worry about.

    About a year and a half ago, the artificial intelligences who manage the Google Chrome browser product decided that they would mark any website that employs the standard "http" protocol and does not use the secure "https" protocol with an ominous "unsafe" symbol. This is good for Google and the Almighty (Alphabet Inc.). As far as the NavList website is concerned, it is inconsequential. All of our posts and uploads are public. If some hacker wanted to secretly follow our posts, he or she would get anywhere from a few seconds to a few minutes preview of our discussions before they appear on the message boards. If you saw such a warning on a bank website, you would have cause for concern. Here?? No.

    The impact of Google's policies, including this one, on the global Internet is an excellent proof that Alphabet Inc. should be broken up. The company which once claimed that its motto was "Don't be evil" now considers mercenary, self-serving evil as standard operating procedure. Google is vile.
