http:// vs https://

In case you did not   know…………Difference between http and https

GREAT information!

Once in a while,   there is something that comes down the pike that is of real   importance.
What is the difference between http and https?

Don’t know how many of you are aware of this difference….                      

but it is worth sending a ” head’s ” up  for those who are not aware of this issue…
The main difference between http:// and https://… is it’s all about keeping you secure.
HTTP stands for  Hyper Text Transfer Protocol.
The S (big surprise) stands for “Secure.” If you visit a website or web page,   and look at
the address in the web browser, it will likely begin with the   following: http://.
This means that the website is talking to your   browser using the regular “unsecured”
language. In other words, it is   possible for someone to “eavesdrop”
on your computer’s conversation with   the website. If you fill out a form on the
website, someone might see the   information you send to that site.
This is why you never ever enter your credit card number in an http website! But   if the web address begins with https://, that basically  means your computer is talking to the website in a secure code that no one can   eavesdrop on.
If a website ever asks you to enter your credit card   information,
you should automatically look to see if the web address begins   with https://.
If it doesn’t, you should NEVER   enter sensitive information…..such as a credit card number, SS #,   etc.
Thought this was something of interest.. feel free to pass this information on to others…  

Comments are appreciated….
