Facebook Turns on HTTPS browsing by default

On wednesday, Facebook turned on a key feature that scrambles data sent by users to the company's servers. This follows a similar move by other giant web services like Google.

HTTPS is a more secure version of the Hypertext Transfer Protocol which is the basic method in which your browser uses to connect with websites, it adds a layer of encryption to data transfer which makes it more difficult for the attackers to see your data.

Although this will make your data transfer a little slower, it is still worth every bit as it guarantees a secure connection.

Facebook is also said to be working on implement 2048-bit RSA keys as well as elliptic curve cryptography, ECDHE key exchange, certificate pinning and HTTP Strict TransportSecurity.
