Migrating from http to https
Summary: Over the last few months we have been working very hard behind the scenes to provide a major security upgrade to UsingEnglish.com.
Since UsingEnglish.com launched in February 2002 users have been accessing the site using something called the HTTP protocol. You will perhaps recognise this as the first part of many internet addresses, such as in http://www.usingenglish.com/. Without wanting to get too deep into what this is, suffice to say that the HTTP protocol is an old and fairly insecure*technology. Many many sites are using this as a way for users to access them, but increasingly sites are converting to the safer HTTPS protocol.
On 14th August 2016 we successfully performed the switch to HTTPS and have been closely monitoring it every since.
