EngageMedia now with HTTPS

by Andrew August 21, 2012
We are now providing https support for logged in users on EngageMedia.org.

What is https you ask? Https is a more secure way to browse the web. It prevents people who may have access to your network from seeing what you are doing or "sniffing" (aka stealing) your passwords.

Why should you care? Because there is now software like Firesheep that makes it easy even for amateurs to access your data and get into your Facebook, Twitter etc. accounts.

The Electronic Frontier Foundation and The Tor Project are running an https-everywhere campaign to help with this. They have built a Firefox addon that automatically redirects you to https when a websites supports it.
