The website is now secured with an SSL certificate. You can tell that by the green padlock and the highlighted https in the your browser’s address bar.
This means any data you enter on the site cannot be read by a third party, because it is encrypted. To anyone trying to see what you are typing, it would just be scrambled information. It also proves you are actually on the genuine Town Site website and not a clone someone may have created to steal your details.
The encryption starts as soon as you go to the Admin panel and continues until you log out. This means no one can steal your login details or anything you write while on the site. This is particularly important if you are using Wi-Fi, especially on a public or shared connection.
