Google Adds 100% Encypted HTTPS Connections

March 20, 2014: Starting today, Gmail will always use an encrypted HTTPS connection when users check or send email.  Gmail has supported https since it was launched in 2010. The change started today means that others cannot "listen in" on emails between your computers, mobile device, smartphone, etc. and Google servers. The importance of this is that this encryption is in place even if you're using a public WiFi or your home connection.
