Enable HTTPS In Your Twitter Account Now For Improved Security

We’ve explained why you should care about HTTPS on sites like Facebook, Gmail and Twitter, so if you’ve been following along, here’s some good news: Twitter just added an option to turn on HTTPS encryption for every connection.

It’s easy to do:

  1. Go to your Twitter settings page.
  2. Tick the Always use HTTPS checkbox.
  3. Click Save.

Going forward, Twitter will always send data back and forth using the considerably more secure HTTPS protocol, and you can open up Twitter in any coffee shop without worrying about some Firesheeper stealing your cookies and masquerading as you.
