When I go to log in to ProZ, it offers me a selection between "secure" and "insecure". I'm sure this is talking about types of internet connections, but "insecure" is not used in this sense. "Insecure" is used to describe a character trait of a person who is "unsure of himself". To describe a connection that is not secure, you should use "non-secure" or, better yet, simply "standard".
