Increase your safety on the internet. Install HTTPS Everywhere on your Chrome, Firefox, or Opera web browser. A free extension from the Electronic Frontier Foundation, this “…encrypts your communications with many major websites, making your browsing more secure.”

From the EFF website:

Many sites on the web offer some limited support for encryption over HTTPS, but make it difficult to use. For instance, they may default to unencrypted HTTP, or fill encrypted pages with links that go back to the unencrypted site. The HTTPS Everywhere extension fixes these problems by using clever technology to rewrite requests to these sites to HTTPS.
