IF YOU KNEW THIS...GOOD. IF YOU DIDN'T... NOW YOU DO.
PLEASE BE SURE TO SHARE.
Some very good information!!
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 to any that do not.....
**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:
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
You understand why this is so important, right?
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.
PASS IT ON (You may save someone a lot of grief).
