Description

When a user logs in to a TXM portal, Firefox 52 and later displays a warning:

"This connection is not secure. Logins entered here could be compromised. Learn more"

[[https://support.mozilla.org/t5/Protect-your-privacy/Insecure-password-warning-in-Firefox/ta-p/27861]]

Some users refuse to enter their credentials when they see this warning.

Solutions

  • Set up a proper secure connection for logging in to TXM portal (SJ: involves SSL/TLS certificates to use HTTPS)
  • Display a message to reinsure the users. Recommend not to use the same password for TXM password and services with personal data.
