Use Gmail in secure mode (Turn on and enable HTTPS)

Google Mail / Gmail includes an security option that allows you to force your email account to be only served and displayed in "secure mode", using "HTTPS" - this is what happens when  your web browser displays (typically) a padlock icon inside the address bar, indicating that the communication between your browser and the web server (in our case, the Gmail mail servers), is encrypted, and thus much harder to hack, if not impossible, from a feasibility standpoint. Here's our secure Gmail inbox shown with HTTPS (in the Opera web browser).

Disable or enable HTTPS in your Gmail account

Follow these simple steps to customize whether Google should display your email account in the most secure form possible or use the standard "HTTP" mode (unencrypted).

And that's all it takes to enable "always secure" mode and turn on HTTPS in Gmail.
