Facebook safer – Increase security through HTTPS

Facebook takes privacy seriously now

Until a few weeks, users of Facebook were able to run your account only by using various extensions permanently with HTTPS. Lately Facebook has this feature for all users, they must be activated manually in the settings.

If the HTTPS encryption enabled, the connection between the user computer and the Facebook servers decoded. The social network is responding to new hacker tools: They start from the access without much effort from unencrypted wireless connections.

Activation via Facebook account

The gain in security is enabled through the user interface “Account” -> “Account settings” -> “Account Security”.
Once the account is equipped with the new function, appears, select “Safe browsing (https)” on.
