Scared of snoops finding out what you're searching for on Google? Have no fear: the comany has introduced encrypted search
which gives the user the option to use SSL (Secure Socket Layer
) to prevent packet sniffing which in turn could reveal user's searches on the site
"We think users will appreciate this new option for searching," Software Engineer Evan Roseman said. "It's a helpful addition to users' online privacy and security, and we'll continue to add encryption support for more search offerings."
