Enable HTTPS Connection In Twitter To Secure You And Your Tweets

Spread the love

Internet Social Media (ISM) is getting more n more importance in our daily life. Many people are so addicted they can not even breath without ISM. Twitter is the most famous example of ISM. I have few friends who may die if they do not have their smart phone and Twitter. In fact, they have Twitter advantage, they do not need to send SMS but just a tweet updates all.

To care about your security, Twitter announced to enable secure connection HTTPS on all its services. Before HTTPS was already enabled on login but now you are able to enable it on all your conversations on Twitter. The main reason behind this action is unsecured WiFi connections and Internet Café where privacy is none and anybody can easily sniff your communication with Twitter. Enabling HTTPS, will make it sure that your all communications with Twitter are secure and unhackable.

we are adding a user setting that lets you always use HTTPS when accessing Twitter.com. Using HTTPS for your favorite Internet services is particularly important when using them over unsecured WiFi connections.

HTTPS connection is always bit lazy because of its encryption and decryption process though Gmail is quite fast but HTTPS makes it sure that you and your communication with the server is safe. This is what Twitter is seeking for now.

Enabling HTTPS connection for all your communication with Twitter servers is very easy. Just Login->Settings->HTTPS Only. You will see a check-box under HTTPS Only option. Mark this check-box and save the settings. From now on, you all conversation with Twitter will be secure. To check that HTTPS connection is active or not, simple check the web-address (URL), if you see https instead of http, it is working.

To turn on HTTPS, go to your settings and check the box next to “Always use HTTPS,” which is at the bottom of the page. This will improve the security of your account and better protect your information if you’re using Twitter over an unsecured Internet connection, like a public WiFi network, where someone may be able to eavesdrop on your site activity. In the future, we hope to make HTTPS the default setting.

    1. Uninstall the driver and reinstall it again. Restart your system. If does not work. Send the laptop back in warranty if you have. It looks like hardware problem.
      Regards,
