A Beginners Guide To HTTPS

Over a billion websites have used the term “HTTPS” on the web, but what exactly does it mean?
? HTTPS stands for HYPERTEXT TRANSFER PROTOCOL SECURE (with Mr. S’s role being most crucial, adding to the security of a website).

What are it’s functions?
?‍? Websites, especially those who require passwords, predominantly have HTTPS.
? In some browsers, websites that do not use HTTPS, are marked differently or flagged, cautioning the users.
? In simple terms, HTTPS enhances security, making it difficult for hackers to steal passwords.

Like cops & robbers…
? When data is transferred from systems (like passwords) HTTPS act as a ‘cop’, protecting the network against ‘robbers’ (snoopers who want to hack or steal information).
? However, if someone manages to crack the code & hacks into the website, he still won’t be able to find the passwords. This is because the passwords are further broken up & appear in an unreadable format.
? For example:
Password: haveagreatday
If someone sniffs this out, it will look like this to them:
Password: gyfg47rjalwtkh58ensj375j4nfwu

Shop safely:
⚙️ When you send sensitive information over an HTTPS connection, it prevents intruders from tampering with that data, making online banking and shopping secure.

Browse securely:
? HTTPS also provides additional privacy for normal web browsing, too. Now a days, most search engines default to HTTPS to ensure secure & private connections. This means that people (& your internet service provider) can’t see what you’re searching for!

Search privately:
? Earlier, if someone was on the same Wi-Fi network they were able to see your searches. Now HTTPS ensures much more privacy for your browsing.

Always check for HTTPS…
? You can tell you’re connected to a website with an HTTPS connection if the address in your web browser’s address bar starts with “https://”.
? You’ll also see a lock icon, which you can click for more information about the website’s security.
