Make Your Internet Secure Everywhere

We all know that you should never enter your credit card details online unless the webpage you’re on is secure. This knowledge has been drilled into our heads constantly by security people over the past decade or so. Even my Grandma knows it. Before she gives her credit card number to or Ebay or wherever she goes to buy ugly thoughtful Christmas sweaters, she checks to make sure there is a little lock icon and the letters “https” at the start of her address bar.


But your credit card data isn’t the only information you want to keep secure online, right? At least for me it isn’t. We expose all kinds of information about ourselves online every day, and we often don’t even realize we’re doing it.



“HTTPS Everywhere” is a browser extension available for Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome designed to make your web browsing more secure. It does this by enabling SSL (Secure Socket Layer) on any website that it can. SSL is the encryption technology used to secure internet traffic like shopping site and online banking. HTTPS Everywhere enables SSL for any website it knows how to enable secure connections on, which is currently almost 3000 websites including the websites for major airlines, universities and social media websites.

The HTTPS Everywhere website explains:

HTTPS Everywhere is produced as a collaboration between The Tor Project and the Electronic Frontier Foundation. Many sites on the web offer some limited support for encryption over HTTPS, but make it difficult to use. For instance, they may default to unencrypted HTTP, or fill encrypted pages with links that go back to the unencrypted site. The HTTPS Everywhere extension fixes these problems by using a clever technology to rewrite requests to these sites to HTTPS.


Once installed, the only indication that HTTPS Everywhere is installed is a small icon in your browser. Clicking the browser icon allows changing settings for HTTPS Everywhere, including enabling or disabling certain websites from being securely redirecting, or disabling HTTPS Everywhere altogether.

HTTPS Everywhere works behind the scenes redirecting unsecured connections to secured versions without needing any user interaction. If you value your privacy online, you would be wise to consider using HTTPS Everywhere.

HTTPS Everywhere can be freely downloaded from the EFF website here:

    Dear sir,
    i came upon your article about Pc Cleaner and I’m very glad I did, as I was about to purchase the other well known PC Cleaning tool.

    I found Speedzooka, very easy to install and even easier to use, plus it does what it says on the tin!
    I have downloaded HTTPS as well, not bad for a technophobe like me… Once again, many thanks for your informative articles, I shall make a point of keeping up to date in future.

    This company had a good product which worked, however, in spite of contacting them they have failed to solve the problem that this software doesn’t work with Windows 10 operation system – I feel very let down and am not getting the benefit of my licence with them.

      Hi Robert, thanks for your comments and I’m happy to hear that you like our SpeedZooka.

      Unfortunately each time a new version of Windows is released its impossible to test for every bug that can occur. We did test SpeedZooka prior to the release of Windows 10 and thought it was compatible, but we missed two bugs. Both bugs were fixed according to our testing department and we are planning on releasing those updates early next week. Of course all updates are free to all customers and are available by clicking the “Update” feature in your software.
