How to send emails securely on gmail

Did you know by default Gmail does not send e-mails over https , although, it does of course use it to log you on to the system.

But you can turn this on, here’s how you do it.

1. Click on settings at the top of your Gmail inbox.


2. Under the general tab scroll to the bottom of the screen to browser connection options.


3. Select https, and click on save.


4. Did it work? You should now always see https in your URL bar!


I know this is simple but you can now securely send emails!
