I'm getting a "Certificate Error" on the Bet Angel site today.
...... Not a good look for anyone visiting the site to be told the following by your browser.

"This site is not secure

This might mean that someone’s trying to fool you or steal any info you send to the server. You should close this site immediately."
I'm no expert in internet security but I think that's only a real concern if one, you're visiting a site you're not familiar with and two, you're about to make a purchase or send private information.

Yet you still used it to tell us how unsafe it is. Calm down, the world's not ending.
I didnt say it was unsafe. I am familiar with the BetAngel site so my assumption was that the SSL certificate had expired so my post was more of a message to the Bet Angel crew to investigate/resolve because anyone visiting the Bet Angel site for the first time would likely not stick around. SSL Certificates have to be renewed every year and some pretty large sites have been known to let them inadvertently expire.

Thanks for the sarky comment thought.

We haven't seen any reports of this today apart from this one. So not sure why you saw that?

It didnt say certificate expiry as such - just certificate error. I first noticed in the BA embedded browser then I tried Firefox, Edge and Chrome browsers - variations of the same message in all 3 browsers. Issue went away about 10 minutes after I posted about the issue so I assumed your team had done something. I'll do a full AV scan of my machine in case I have a local issue.

Note added : I've scanned my PC and no issues detected. Will have to put it down as a temporary glitch then I guess. I'll notify support directly if it recurs.
