Enable the SSL feature of Gmail, Wi-Fi security

People checking their e-mail from public wireless (Wi-Fi) hotspots are obviously more likely to get attacked especially users with GMail account.

For your security, Google advise all their users to enable the SSL feature of Gmail.

The problem were presented in the last Defcon hackers’ conference in Las Vegas. They show a tool that automatically steals IDs of non-encrypted sessions and breaks into Google Mail accounts.

To Enable You Gmail's SSL by default:
  1. Log-in to your GMAil account and click Settings.
  2. Scroll the page and find the BROWSER CONNECTIONS, Select the "Always use https" option then click save.
