Facebook Beefs Up Security Options
Posted January 27, 2011on:
Facebook finally has provided the option of accessing the site using the HTTPs protocol. This is the HTTP Secure protocol which should amp up the security considerably. HTTPs gives the regular HTTP protocols the protection of the SSL protocol which should give it an added layer of encryption and also forces the checking of a valid web certificate.
Do note however that some features on Facebook still don’t support the HTTPs protocol and will not do so for some time. It just comes down to a fair trade-off between security and convenience. You decide.
