What is Always-On SSL or HTTPS Everywhere?
The http part of a web site address indicates that it is a normal, unencrypted connection. A web address starting with https (notice the “s” added on) indicates the connection is encrypted. Always-On SSL means that from start to finish a web visitor will never leave https mode and all data passed between their web browser and your website will be fully encrypted. Even a sophisticated eavesdropper will not be able to listen in on the information.
