It’s been about six weeks since Facebook launched HTTPS security as an optional feature to keep your data safe while browsing on unsecured wireless networks. Twitter this week announced that they’ve introduced the same extra level of security. But the question remains – have you activated them?
Online security is a constantly evolving process, and it’s good to see that major social networks like Facebook, Google and Twitter are now offering HTTPS security, so your personal details don’t get fleeced should you hop onto an unsecured network.
But given that both Facebook and Twitter see the HTTPS standard as an option rather than a mandatory inclusion, we have to wonder whether or not people are actually bothering to activate it? Let us know below and is the answer’s no, let us know why in comments.
