Why am I seeing the message, "We've detected an insecure login form" when I visit a site?

LastPass will display this warning message if your LastPass web browser extension Preferences are enabled to warn before autofilling on a form that is not secure.

This means that the website you are visiting uses an insecure method to submit data (LastPass specifically looks for GET and mailto: methods on the page).
