Geni is allowing identity theft by not using https: protocol

Birth dates and maiden names are personal information that could be used for identity theft in the wrong hands.  Geni.com should encrypt all web pages using encrypted https: protocol so this sensitive information cannot be stolen.  Geni, as you should know, displaying web pages using http: (and not https:) is not secure and all information such as birth dates and maiden names are transmitted across the internet in clear text which could be captured and used for identity theft.  Geni, you have a responsibility to keep our information secure, not just on your servers, but as it is transmitted to your users across the internet.  Please update your system to always use secure https: protocol.  Thanks for your attention.
