As we have already mentioned, the HTTPS Protocol is used to secure sensitive data during online purchases such as online banking, filling in forms or online shopping. This protocol uses SSL/TLS-based coding to create an encrypted channel that relies on the remote server and the browser of the user. This is a more appropriate way to process this sort of data than with HTTP.
Thanks to this safer method, we ensure that private information cannot be taken inappropriately if the hacker wants to interfere in the transmission of data. If this were to happen, the hacker would only find encrypted data that cannot be deciphered. The standard port that is used for this protocol is 443.
HTTPS is highly important when using public Wi-Fi, since you are linked to others on the same network, so it is vital to encrypt your data and just use HTTPS pages. Visitors should verify the safety status of the website on their browser by searching for a padlock icon in the address bar that visually shows the proper application of the HTTPS.
