    GOOGLE encrypts all G-Mail software.

    Post by papa_umau on Mon 24 Mar 2014, 11:51 am

    In order to subvert "snooping" by The National Security Agency, ( NSA ), Google will encrypt all message that are sent and received via G-Mail.

    Read more on this from The Enquirer HERE

    If you do use G-Mail, as I do for web-uses, you will see that the top line of the webpage will now start "HTTPS" as with banking pages etc'.

    Gmail security engineering lead Nicolas Lidzborski announced:

    "Today's change means that no one can listen in on your messages as they go back and forth between you and Gmail's servers - no matter if you're using public WiFi or logging in from your computer, phone or tablet."

    I thought that they had been encrypted for a while.Question

    I suppose that it is a good thing as the longer the internet runs more and more authorities and criminals are going to snoop on us.

    Yes Zath', I think that in the future more and more websites are going to use encryption to protect their customers from such "snoopers".

    After all it is an easy thing for webmasters to do if they want to.
