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.
