HTTPS Everywhere For Firefox For Android Secures Your Mobile Browsing

Android: HTTPS Everywhere, one of our favourite privacy-protecting browser extensions, now protects your surfing on your Android phone as well, as long your primary browser on Android is Firefox. The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) has made the add-on available to mobile users, and it works like a charm.

Like its desktop counterpart, HTTPS Everywhere makes sure that you’re using HTTPS whenever possible, and kicks- your browsing session over to HTTPS on its list of sites that support it, even if you click a link or are routed to a page that’s not SSLencrypted. To install, visit the link below using Firefox for Android, and the add-on will be automatically installed for you. Firefox will prompt you to accept the installation, restart to complete the changes, and when it’s back up, you’ll see the HTTPS Everywhere logo in the address bar.

The Android version works with all of the sites that the desktop versions of the add-on support, so you don’t have to worry about missing out on anything. If you want HTTPS Everywhere on the desktop, you can check out the available versions here. For more, hit the links below.
