What is HTTPS?
HTTPS, or Hyper Text Transfer Protocol Secure, is the secure version of HTTP. It ensures that any communication between the user's browser and the website is encrypted and protected from eavesdropping or tampering by third parties.
When using HTTPS, a website's URL starts with "https://" instead of "http://". This indicates that the website has an SSL/TLS certificate installed, which establishes a secure connection between the server and client.
Overall, HTTPS is essential for protecting sensitive information such as passwords, credit card numbers, and personal data from being intercepted by hackers who may try to steal this information while it’s being transmitted over the internet.
