dpont use get its insecure. a;lways use post


POST is just as insecure. You use whichever one is needed. For searches you want to use GET so they can be linked / bookmarked. Where as submitting forms with a bunch of data you want to use POST due to the size limitations of GET. But either method is "insecure" if you do not filter the data.
