    The redirect isnt happening exactly right when using just CareCure.net as the URL. Modify your bookmark to be https://www.carecure.net and it will connect over SSL (secure socket layer). This will be fixed, but for now just don't leave https://www off of your URL as a simple work around.

      Since that was a security thing, I couldn't ignore it. I have fixed it now so that it will redirect any http connections to https. Thanks for reminding me.

      There's a lot of stuff that happens with your web browser that isn't obvious. And as long as you end up in the right place, you kinda don't care. When you type in 'carecure.net' with nothing else, that's not actually a valid URL. It has to have http:// or https:// in front. Your web browser thinks "gee, I could tell the user that they didn't type a valid URL, but rather than do that, why don't I be helpful and add http://www. in front of what they typed and see if that works?" So you type carecure.net and your web browser helpfully turns it into http://www.carecure.net/. In some web browsers, they don't even show you the www! So you see "carecure.net" but you're actually going to www.carecure.net. It's such a mess in the sense that what you SEE isn't what is happening, but is rather a friendly approximation of what is happening. So that means that server guys like me have to know what is happening, and then make all the right magic on our side bounce you the right way when you come in the wrong way.

      Anyways, that's a long way of saying "there, I fixed it."

          That's wierd. Can you give me some more details? What browser are you using? What URL are you hitting? The icon itself is clickable. So maybe you can tell me what words it says there about how it's insecure. That's perplexing me.
