ssl search

Surfing the Internet exposes you to a big variety of risks. The risk of being tracked by a third party on your network, the risk of being spotted by hackers and viruses and so on. That’s why Google, well-aware of this issue, has recently introduced an interesting feature which lets you search Google Search Engine over a SSL connection. SSL connection is a security protocol which provides  encrypted Internet connection which protects you from malicious users and software.

To Use Google SSL is sufficient to click this link: https://www.google.com. As you see the only difference is the “s” located at the end of the “http” prefix. Reading from the official Google blog: “When you search on https://www.google.com, an encrypted connection is created between your browser and Google. This secured channel helps protect your search terms and your search results pages from being intercepted by a third party on your network”.

Remember, the service is still in beta and covers only the core Google web search product.

    Google says:”Note that SSL search does not reduce the data that Google receives and logs when you search, or change the listing of these terms in your Web History New window icon. ”
