HTTPS Everywhere | Electronic Frontier Foundation. Internet Security is the fourth great lie of our age. By now, if you have been paying attention, you know that nothing on the net is secure. But, by using encrypted channels to send information back and forth to your computer, you can give yourself some serious protection from scammers and hackers. Google has been marking websites as "Not Secure" for some time now; but, it is about to do it all the time. The HTTPS protocol gives some comfort that third parties can't invade the channel you are using to send info from your browser to the Internet servers and back. But, if a website doesn't use HTTPS, you can install a simple extension that will make the website more secure. Do it now. It is free.
