    Is it safe...


    ...to visit an 'Http' site?

    Or is that a total risk, best avoided?

    Well, neither Firefox or Bitdefender popped up a warning.
    I'd say it's OK.

    If anything weird pops up, think twice before signing over your paycheck.

    In terms of security, HTTP is completely fine when browsing the web. It only becomes an issue when you're entering sensitive data into form fields on a website. If you're entering sensitive data into an HTTP web page, that data is transmitted in cleartext and can be read by anyone.

    In other words, you probably shouldn't type things like your credit card number, real name, phone number, etc... on an http website.



    Are HTTP Websites Insecure?
