Tekzilla Daily Tip #32: A More Secure Gmail

Posted in Companies, Web Technologies, Podcasts on November 13, 2008

Are you a Gmail user? Listen up, cause here's a snazzy tip in protecting your emails.

By default the connection to the Gmail server is unsecured. That means if you're using a public or open Wi-Fi network anyone with the right tools can read your emails when they get sent from your machine to Gmail's servers. So if you're gonna do any email checking on the road away from a secured network, make sure you use the encrypted login. Just add an "s" after the "http" at your GMAIL account and hit enter. Voila! You're in secured mode. Just remember to do it before you login.
