Internet Safety Tips: HTTP vs. HTTPS — What’s the Difference?

08/13/2014   |   No Comments »

“http” versus “https” – So what’s the difference (and should you care)?

HTTP stands for Hyper Text Transfer Protocol. The S stands for “Secure.”

If the URL of a website or web page begins with http:// then the website you are viewing is communicating with your browser via an unsecured language. What this means is that the information you view and or send (in a form for example) is not protected and can be viewed by others. Technically, this means someone can eavesdrop on your computer’s conversation with the website.

Clearly, it is not a good idea to share your credit card information with just anyone, so be sure the form or commerce cart you are using is on a secure server.  How can you tell?

The URL of a secure website will begin with https:// (the S is what you are looking for).  This tells you the website is secure and no one can eavesdrop.

Be aware: remember to look to see if the URL address begins with httpS before entering sensitive information like a credit card number, social security number, or any personal information that you do not want to share.
