How to change your settings to use HTTPS on Twitter – its safer.

I recently explained how to change your settings on Facebook to HTTPS since they added the option due to a hacking indecent, and now finally Twitter has actually added this option for users to always use HTTPS.


When a user connects to a website via HTTPS, the website encrypts the session with a digital certificate. A user can tell if they are connected to a secure website if the website URL begins with https:// instead of http://


HTTPS helps to protect your password from being stolen, especially if you are using a public WiFi network


When using Twitter.com we could always use HTTPS but had to manually type it in, there is now a box for you to tick in settings to make sure that you always use the more secure HTTPS.


Twitter also uses HTTPS as a default on its log-in page so that users’ credentials are encrypted. Its official iPhone and iPad applications also have HTTPS as their default setting.


If you are using a 3rd Party app you need to check if your have settings on there so that you can sign in using HTTPS


To Change your settings on Twitter.com


Click Settings
Scroll down
Tick the box marked HTTPS Only
Click SAVE



Confirm your password – and its done,  you will now be on an encrypted secure connection.
Hope this helps
