Facebook Secure Browsing

Facebook allows users to browse Facebook over a secure https connection, which will add added security to your Facebook account. The feature is not enabled by default, but you can change it in your Facebook settings easily.

Go to and visit the Account Security details. Look for the Secure browsing option – “Choose Browse Facebook on a secure connection (https) whenever possible”, tick the checkbox and Save.
