Why does Facebook show me a security warning when I use Glype?

When I try to use Facebook with Glype (which was the main reason I set it up), it glitches when I try to log in. It looks like it is trying to display an HTML warning that “this is not a secure connection”. But it just displays the code.

Security Warning
html, body {
 background: #0b1933;
 text-align: center;
 }
 body {
 font: 80% Tahoma;
 }
 #wrapper {
 margin: 100px auto;
 width: 500px;
 text-align: left;
 background: #fff;
 padding: 10px;
 border: 5px solid #ccc;
 }
 form {
 text-align: center;
 }
Warning!
The site you are attempting to browse is on a secure connection. This proxy is not on a secure connection. The target site may send sensitive data, which may be intercepted when the proxy sends it back to you.
Note: this warning will not appear again.

What’s up?

    What susendeep dutta said is right, but that's because the glype proxy site that you are using enabled security warnings. You won't see those warnings if you try with a proxy site like this one:
    unblock websites/

    Well, the problem's simple. You are accessing Facebook using a proxy server, which Facebook anyways [b]don't[/b] like you to. Also, it is rather unsafe for you too as the proxy owner can compromise your account if you use the proxy. Better use a VPN like from those from PrivateInternetAccess, or try the free CyberGhost VPN. You can get their premium annual plan for free from the Rewards section of your MUO account.

    I hope this helps.

    On of the reason could be that as stated by a forum user

    Dollar -

    The reason you get a security warning in glype is becuase your passing your login from http to Https. So its unsecure to the proxy. Facebook uses SSL for the login.

    At the end of the question,it says that the warning would not appear again,then after trying to access it for second time,I think it must not be showing you this message.You can also try to disable https if this doesn't works.

    Also, see the video -
