What is HTTPS?

HTTP stands for Hypertext Transfer Protocol. HTTP helps internet users communicate with other sites on the World Wide Web. In order to make the communication secure, HTTPS comes and the "S" means "Secure". If websites do not have HTTPS, this means that users' data information could be compromised and fall into third parties' hands.
