this is a follow up post to securing your gmail.
google has made it easier for you to permanently use https when you access your gmail account. that’s from login and logout and everything in between. in gmail, click on your “settings” located on the upper right hand of the browser screen. this will bring you to the general settings of your gmail account. scroll down to the bottom and you will see “browser connection“. click on the “always use https” and then click on “save changes“.
please understand that doing this will make your gmail session a tiny bit slower because of all the encryption/decryption that’s going on between your browser and google mail. the upside is you secure your gmail account. 😉
