Secure your Gmail…

insecure gmail login

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.

Secure gmail log in

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?

I began programming in C++ when I was in college. Odd for a business major, but hey I am a Dork. After college I got a job as System Administrator. As a System Administrator I was in charge of web administration. My journey as a PHP web developer had begun. Since that time I have gained an in depth knowledge of CSS, Javascript, XML and MySQL. With changes and advances to technology I have also began learning AJAX. I started Blue Fire Development to do freelance work in my spare time.
