Recently blogger added new feature to access your blogspot blog on a secure https connection.Hyper text transfer protocol secure is internet communication protocol that protects the integrity and confidentiality of your users data between the user’s computer and the site.It protects a site visitor or users personal information when he/she tries to enter information on your site for subscription or shopping.
Benefits of https site

- With https a user can safely browse your site as he is expecting a secure online experience which helps in building users trust.
- It prevents stealing information and tracking activities of a user by eavesdroppers.The data will be encrypted and protected with Transport Layer Security (TLS) which provides three key layers of protection.The three layers are Encryption,Data integrity& Authentication.
