Secure your Gmail access with sSL

Did you noticed that when you log into your Gmail account, the default connection for user validation is via SSL, however once your Inbox is loaded, the connection is redirected to non-secure ordinary http://.

When you change the URL prefix to secure mode (https), it reconnect to your Inbox via SSL and then retain the SSL connection for the remainder of the session. So there is a secure mode, it is not just configured as default setting. This behavior is the same regardless across different browsers (Firefox or IE).

If you frequently connect to your Gmail account via public WIFI access points, you should be concerned. With the frequent "Man In the Middle" or commonly known as MITM attack, using a secured connection as much as posssible on authenticated sessions is now a must.

There is an option force your Gmail account to login securely.

  • Once you are login, click on the “Settings” link located on the upper portion

settings

  • Once inside the Settings, scroll down to “browser connection” wherein there is a radio button. Select “Always use https”. 

always_use_https

  • Click save and logout
  • When you try to login again, your connection should be https by default

 

Enjoy checking your email securely…..

    I believe everything posted was actually very logical. But, think about this, suppose you wrote a catchier post title? I ain’t suggesting your content isn’t solid., however what if you added a post title that grabbed people’s attention? I mean %BLOG_TITLE% is a little boring. You might glance at Yahoo’s front page and note how they create news titles to get viewers to open the links. You might try adding a video or a pic or two to get readers interested about everything’ve got to say. In my opinion, it could make your posts a little livelier.|

    Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that
    automatically tweet my newest twitter updates. I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for quite
    some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something
    like this. Please let me know if you run into anything.

    I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward
    to your new updates.

    With havin so much content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or
    copyright infringement? My website has a lot of exclusive content I’ve either
    written myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of
    it is popping it up all over the web without my authorization. Do you know any techniques to help stop content
    from being stolen? I’d definitely appreciate it.

    Hey would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re using?
    I’m planning to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a difficult time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different
    then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique.
    P.S Apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

    Link exchange is nothing else except it is only placing the other person’s
    weblog link on your page at appropriate place and other person will also do
    similar in support of you.
