If you use https rather than http when connecting to sites you are more secure. You have added assurance that you are actually getting to the site you intended to go to. There is malware that can hijack your Domain Name Service (DNS) and send you to a different site than requested. This fails with https, because they will not be able to provide a certificate for that site. Our web site https://hernandosun.com/ recently switched to defaulting all traffic to https.
