Is the message in the image below the one you are getting?

If so it is probably coming from your browser (Firefox does it to me) because the site you are accessing is not using 'https' protocol. Firefox in particular now considers anything else insecure e.g. 'http'

click on 'Learn More' for an explanation.

The question has been raised before Increased security for Firefox users
Active links are now (after 13/04/2018) indicated by bold red italics. Just click on them.
The only stupid question is the one not asked

Thanks to all for your interest and help; Firefox gave me an update this morning and all is well again, fingers crossed.
