Why arn't there any encryption on the stencyl website. Not on the forums, not on the download page?
Isn't this a safety hasard? Can we trust that the software is safe?

The store is encrypted as it handles payments. Not every website needs to be encrypted, particularly if you're not handling sensitive information. The software is perfectly safe.

Yeah, the software in it self might be safe. But more vulnerable for attacks? and hackers interfering with the software?

I really don't see how. I think you're being over cautious. No one has reported any issues on the forums or discord. I don't know where the software files are hosted, but I'm fairly confident it's not actually on this site.
