What is HTTPS?
Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure (kurz: HTTPS) is a protocol used for secure data transmission on the internet. HTTPS encrypts and decrypts requests between a user and a website. It is widely used for online shops and for online banking. Without encryption, the transmitted data could be read in the clear by anyone with access to the same network. The abbreviation is also visible in the browser’s address bar. A HTTPS connection prevents your data from being snooped on.
