Keep Facebook Secure by Enabling HTTPS

There is always publicity for Facebook and the impression is given that it is not secure , especially in light of the Firesheep add on publicity recently.

We should know that as with online shopping the safest sites are one's that begin with https with the green lock.

Https is a way to encrypt data sent & received over the internet so sensitive transactions and transmissions are secure.

This has now been addressed and introduced in Facebook

Here is how you enable https in Facebook

First go to your account settings on the top right hand side of your Facebook page

Then you want to go to your account settings

Click on Account settings

Then click on "Change" in the Account security tab

 Here you should see " Secure Browsing (https)

 Put a tick in the box " Browse Facebook on a secure connection (https) whenever possible

Then click "Save"

Now when you are on Facebook you will see the green padlock and https which is now secure
