Q: What is the difference between HTTP and HTTPS?A: HTTP is merely the protocol used to transfer data (pass information) back and forth between the web servers and clients. When the letter S (https://) is added, it simply means the information being passed back and forth is secure and cannot be viewed by others.
A: No, and for some this can be misleading. It only means the information sent and received by the site is secure. It does not guarantee the site is reputable, so only supply information to established sites.
