In the middle of June 2017, several parts in SCARM website were upgraded for increased security and better user experience.
1. SSL certificate
The first improvement increases the security in two areas of the site by adding of SSL server certificate and implementing of the encrypted HTTPS protocol for communication between the server and user’s browsers. These areas are the Registered Users Area and the SCARM Webshop. To check the new improved security level of these areas, always look in the browser’s address bar for ‘https://’ protocol in the beginning of the web address and/or for a green padlock before the address. If these signs are not present, you should manually edit the address to start with ‘https://’ and press Enter to reload the current page.
2. Alternative payment option in SCARM Webshop
The second improvement is related to the payment method in the SCARM Webshop. Until recently, the only payment option for buying of commercial extensions for SCARM was Paypal. Now, there is one more option for paying – by direct use of credit / debit card and without need for registration in a third party system. This new option is Paddle – a British company for reselling of software, based in London. If you don’t have a Paypal account or don’t want to use it when purchasing SCARM extensions, just select the green “Pay now” button for Paddle and pay with your credid / debit card as a last step in the purchasing process.
