Secure Gmail

Hi,

few weeks ago, I told you about Gmail and Remote Sign Out.

Today, the good news is for those who worries about secure navigation. If you are one of them, it’s time to change some gmail default options. Now, you are able to configure your gmail account to use always HTTPS  protocol.

Using an https: URL indicates that HTTP is used with a different default TCP port (443) and an additional encryption/authentication layer between the HTTP and TCP. This system provides authentication and encrypted communication and is widely used on the World Wide Web for security-sensitive communication such as payment transactions and corporate logons.

To get a secure gmail experience, you just need to click on Settings and mark the option Always use https, as shown in the picture below.

It’s done!
