HTTPS for Bee
HTTPS FOR BEE
Following our commitment to security, on Tuesday 29 May 2018 we will no longer support unsecure connections to Webroster.net via Bee. Unsecure connections will be refused and Bee will not function.
How to identify if Bee users need to make changes
You can identify whether your Bee users need to make changes by asking them to look at the Webroster Server setting in the Settings page of Bee.
If the address reads http://mywebroster.com then the user will need to follow the steps below.
If the address reads https://mywebroster.com (note the ‘S’ in ‘https’) then no further action is required.
https denotes secure, whilst http denotes unsecure.
We recommend your Bee users change their Webroster Server address before Tuesday 29 May 2018.
