    What is the difference between http and https ?
    The main difference between http:// and https:// is that it all about keeping you secure.
    HTTP stands for Hyper Text Transfer Protocol.

    The S in HTTPS:// stands for "Secure".
    If you visit a website or webpage, and look at the address in the web browser, it will likely begin with the following: http://. This means that the website is talking to your browser using the regular 'unsecure' language. In other words, it is possible for someone to "eavesdrop" on your computer's conversation with the website. Visit here(http://www.baurhome.net/software/eavesdrop/index.html[/B]]Eavesdrop) learn more about eavesdrop. If you fill out a form on this kind of website, someone might see the information you send to that site. This is why you should never ever enter your
    Credit Card/ATM Card Number in an http website!

    But if the web address begins with https://, that basically means your computer is talking to the website in a secure code that no one can eavesdrop on.
    You understand why this is so important, right? If a website ever asks you to enter your Credit Card
    information, you should automatically look to see if the web address begins with https://. If it doesn't, you should NEVER enter sensitive
    information such as a credit card number.

    To understand clearly what is meant here visit these websites:

    TOFAUTI KATI YA HTTP NA HTTPS

    Hiyo herufi “S” hapo mbele ndio inayotofautisha HTTP dhidi ya HTTPS. Inahusiana na masuala mazima ya usalama wakati unaperuzi katika wavuti. Herufi “S” mbele ya HTTPS inawakirisha “Secure”, yaani usalama.
    Iwapo utatembelea wavuti na kuangalia katika anuani utaona inaonekana hivi: http://. Hii ina maana kwamba kirambaza chako (browser) kinawasiliana na wavuti kupitia njia isiyo salama. Hivyo inakuwa rahisi kwa watu wasio na nia njema kuiba maelezo yote uyafanyayo. Kwa mfano ukijaza fomu iliyo katika wavuti ya aina hii ni rahisi kwa mtu kuiba maelezo hayo. KAMWE usijaze maelezo yako binafsi kwa mfano ya ATM au CREDIT CARD katika wavuti zinazoanza na HTTP://
    Kwa upande mwengine iwapo wavuti inaanza na HTTPS:// hiyo ina maana kwamba kompyuta yako inawasiliana na wavuti kupitia njia salama, hakuna atakayeweza kuiba maelezo au maongezi yafanywayo kati ya kompyuta na wavuti.

    MUHIMU:

    Ichunguze wavuti kuona kama inaanza na HTTP:// au HTTPS:// kisha ndio uendelee na kujaza maelezo yako binafsi katika fomu utakayoikuta humo. Ili uelewe vizuri fungua wavuti hizi hapa chini:
