And then again, maybe it's not OK: http://www.phayul.com/mobile/?page=view&c=1&id=40171

It's also strange that this web sight doesn't have a PADLOCK in the address bar, to signify safety.....

It's because it doesn't use HTTPS (HTTP Secure) which gives extra security, it's not really important though as phayul isn't used for payments or emails.

As a note though it seems Tibetans in exile rarely have this as they aren't the best with technology.
