SSL - What it means for you

Benefits of SSL

 

Why use SSL? To Encrypt Sensitive Information

The primary reason why SSL is used is to keep sensitive information sent across the Internet encrypted so that only the intended recipient can understand it. This is important because the information you send on the Internet is passed from computer to computer to get to the destination server. Any computer in between you and the server can see your credit card numbers, usernames and passwords, and other sensitive information if it is not encrypted with an SSL certificate. When an SSL certificate is used, the information becomes unreadable to everyone except for the server you are sending the information to. This protects it from hackers and identity thieves.

 

How do i know it running under SSL

Web browsers give visual cues, such as a lock icon or a green bar, to make sure you know when your connection is secured.

This means that when the browser bar changes to a green bar or displays https the connection is secure
