Secure your Gmail…
If your like me you love Gmail. The tagging, chatting, and of course the massive storage. But have you ever noticed when you type www.gmail.com you get redirected to https://www.google.com/… Secure right… Not totally. Once you log into you are redirected to http://mail.google.com/… which is insecure. Granted if you are at home and your system is clean with nothing sniffing network traffic you are fine. But I want more security.
To make your entire Gmail session secure simply type https://www.gmail.com. This will redirect you to the same secure log in page as before. But once you log in it directs you to https://mail.google.com/… Your Gmail session is now secure and everything is on https.
Higher security by typing 8 more characters. It is worth it to me. Is it worth it to you?
