A dedicated webpage for Google search over SSL is introduced by Google, which offers end-to-end encrypted search solution between your computer and Google. This provides you with a more secure and private search experience.
SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is a protocol that helps provide secure Internet communications for services like web browsing, e-mail, instant messaging, and other data transfers. When you search over SSL, your search queries and search traffic are encrypted so they can’t be read by any intermediary party such as employers and internet service providers (ISPs).
To use search over SSL, visit https://www.google.com each time you perform a search.
Remember that only Google web search supports search over SSL, so searching Google Images, for example, will not be encrypted.
