Https (Moved from the Cyber Safety Forum)

This is an issue, that I have not looked at seriously, however what setting in Gmail sets HTTPS to be used as a default setting.

Say, speaking of HTTPS, how come CTH isn't using it? Uhh Ha the CTH Staff probably know my password if their just using HTTP, Urrg. EDIT: Oh wait HTTPS works with CyberTech.

There is no setting. You enter https://gmail.com in the address bar, it will use SSL for Gmail. But Gmail always uses SSL for logging in, no matter which URL you enter.

You can use SSL if you want, by putting HTTPS in the URL. It's not forced, because it doesn't need to be, CTH accounts aren't that important. CTH staff can't view your password anyway, it's hashed in the database. Mishy could go through site logs and get it from the post data though, if he wanted (and if it's logged, which it probably isn't).

If you visit Gmail via the HTTPS address, it will stay on HTTPS when viewing your inbox.
