That's a default warning because the site is not being served over https - you're probably using Chrome or FF 68+ ?

There's very little to worry about as there in little real personal information being held here and the warning is because Google and some others decided that the web should be https by default, in a broad brush way. Banking etc absolutely, general websites, nah not really and there are downsides to https

The only insecurity is around the password transmission when you log in, if you stay logged in then that risk pretty much disappears. In any case, whenever hacks take place it is normally by other weaknesses resulting in extraction from the databases rather than the front end, so http / https makes no difference at all to the risk from a targetted attack. Passwords themselves are encrypted and salted in the database so are not readable
