Google SSL Encrypted or Not?
Securing your connection between google and your computer is not rocket science, but a lot of people are still not doing it. You can browse Google over a encrypted connection by typing “https://google.com
Google by default is not encrypted just like many other sites. See our post about browsing social media sites at work and Facebook over SSL. Browsing sites with an SSL encrypted connection are more processor intensive and thus a little slower when it comes to viewing. There may be one day where users can view the sites on an encrypted secure SSL connection, but for now it seems like most users will have to secure the connection on their own.
By doing this you can have an end-to-end encrypted search solution between your computer and Google.
