Twitter Forces HTTPS Connections to its Users

You Are Here

Like Gmail , Twitter now force HTTPS connections to all its users. HTTPS encrypts your data. Clearly, once activated, makes it impossible to access your data from a computer that is connected to the same public network as yours. It is strongly suggested to use this connection type when using a public hotspot. How do I know if you use it? This is simply to add an “S. “At the end of” http”.

Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure (HTTPS) is the most secure version of the Hyper Text Transfer Protocol (HTTP) which allows secure information exchange between its user and the corresponding site. A padlock icon will usually be display at the bottom right of browser to indicate that the site is already secure with HTTPS.

Most major Web services like Hotmail , Gmail and Facebook already offer this protocol. Against by very few services use force. Note that Twitter still offers the possibility to manually disable HTTPS. To disable it, go here and remove the hook to the left of “Always use HTTPS”.

Remember that when you are logged on a public WiFi, it is relatively easy to access content  from your computer. If you want to force use of HTTPS when browsing the Web, it will always secure for you.
