A while back there was a lot of talk about peoples accounts being easily hacked with a Firefox plugin called Firesheep. This could be done because sites like Facebook didn’t use secure https connections.
Well now, as some may have noticed, Facebook has solved the problem and you can now activate https, “whenever possible“.
This is how to activate it:
- click Account in the right corner
- Account Settings
- Click the Account Security heading (third from bottom)
- Mark the Secure Browsing (https) option
Option should be available to everyone, but if you don’t see it check back in a few days.
You could also fill in the ‘s’ in the adress bar yourself when you login so that the adress is https://facebook.com instead of http://facebook.com .
