According to Adam Dachis said, “HTTP stands for Hypertext Transfer Protocol, so HTTPS stands for the same thing but with Secure on the end of it.” That means, it provides more security as it protects you from getting your private information stolen. For example, when you submit your personal info such as your phone number or password on Facebook, they won’t be copied by any hackers because these confidential data are encrypted. OK, enough with the jargons now. To secure your Facebook browsing, you’d need to do the following:
- When you’re logged in, look at the top side of your account and you should see a mini “settings” icon and select “Privacy Settings” option from the drop down menu.
- Click the “Security” option located at the left side of your screen.
- Select “Secure Browsing” option and make sure the “Browse Facebook on a secure connection (https) when possible” option is checked.
- Click “Save Changes” button. You’re done!
