  1. I hope you are right Karen. I too used a packet sniffer to check this out, otherwise I would have no base for my claims other than that notice in the KB article. Perhaps it is because I am using an outdated LL viewer released in April, 2015. But chat is indeed un-encrypted in my viewer.  Thanks for testing it out in the newest viewer! Give my thanks to your daughter as well! ^^

What does this mean for you? Well, you should just be very careful about what you share online. To reach a destination, messages on the internet pass through many checkpoints. For example, if you are playing SL on a Windows laptop, the message will go from your viewer, to your network adapter. Between these two checkpoints, any program on your computer has the opportunity to pick up plain-text in a message
