Surfing the internet is commonplace these days. Most of us have our favorite websites that we check in on every day.
However, some of the sites that we visit can be a security risk. That's because not all of them are using encryption, like banks and financial institutions do.
There are also sites that use encryption, but stop doing so after you have signed in. This leaves you vulnerable and open to hackers and malicious viruses.
One easy way to solve this problem is to add the browser extension HTTPS Everywhere.
HTTPS Everywhere switches thousands of sites from insecure "http" to secure "https." It will protect you against many forms of surveillance and account hijacking and some forms of censorship.
It's easy to install and it keeps your communications secure with major websites. It's available for free on both Chrome and Firefox browsers.
