how to set gmail to allways secure connection!

If you're like me, using gmail for important things over wireless technology... specially knowing how easy it is to see everything being passed over LAN/WLAN connections.

Then you will love this new feature of gmail:

All you have to do is go to your gmail settings ( and scroll to the bottom, there you will see "Always use https" click that and click Save.

Done, now whenever and where ever you may log into your gmail, it will always use HyperText Transfer Protocol Secure (HTTPS) instead of the other option (http).

This isn't new - in fact I've been using the secure option for years, what is new is the option to set it for default in the settings.

I just had to manualy type in or saved the bookmark to keep me safe when checking my email :)

Try it and let me know how it goes!
