A few months ago, I posted information about Apple ios 10 blocking access to websites without a secure connection, if you wanted to tell a website your GPS location. I use that capability in the “show me radio/TV stations near me” thingy up above. The browser will only tell the server your location if you click OK to disclosing your location to the server. You never know – I might show up someday and steal all your 25-year supply of gourmet macaroni and cheese. If that doesn’t scare you, you can assume the risk that I am actually a spy for Russia and/or the illuminati.
So now you can access the near me thing in Secure mode (https:). You might get a warning telling you that the security certificate for the server is self-signed – meaning that no government agency has vouched for me because I did not provide them with my private encryption key, birth certifucate, DNA sample and biometric data. You either trust me or you don’t.
If you prefer, you can do everything on the website in the secure mode just by adding the S after http. I will add a link to the menus to make that easier, but I have no plans to require you to use secure connections. Older browsers may not work correctly. If the NSA wants to look at your favorite radio stations list, they have too much time and money on their hands
