Hello all
As per title...I get this message when trying to get on the forum when out and about using my mobile data. I have a 4g signal and can get on any other website I usually look at...fleabay, YouTube etc....I've tried clearing data on my phine. Anything else I could try?

I use my phone on mobile data all over the lakes when at work Clint (3G and 4G) and have never seen this message, have you tried a different browser?

I've done a bit of digging...when I try to connect to the forum on mobile data,it stops me, display the message described..but it puts an exclamation mark before the web address... chrome says this means my connection isn't secure and stops me connecting...the web address starts "Https" which is supposed to be secure...

Two step verification shouldn't be set by default have you changed it have you tried it turned off?

I will ask Angie if she can help.

Oi! It's no laughing matter...what am I supposed to do when I'm stranded down the allotment in the rain?

Have you got one of those Huawei phones?

My son-in-law has one and it doesn't like being turned off as then it can't spy on you......

Who is your provider? You might have some web browsing restrictions on your mobile internet...
Can you visit other booze related sites when off WiFi? Or pornhub

Try searching for the site in google and use that link rather than a bookmark as the old bookmark may be the problem.
