At Forkliftaction, we take your safety and security very seriously. That's why we are upgrading the website to the more secure HTTPS protocol.
The upgrade will take place next week, so you'll be able to access your newsletter this week in the usual way.
But from Monday 29 May, you will need to sign in again to renew your Forkliftaction login cookie to the secure version.
This is a one-off action, and after logging in, you will continue to enjoy all the features you have come to rely on without having to do it again.
For details on how to log in and how to retrieve your password, please see below.
Apologies for any inconvenience and, as they say, see you on the safe side.
