Google’s safe search

Did you know about Google’s safe search?

Accordingly to Google:

With Google search over SSL, you can have an end-to-end encrypted search solution between your computer and Google. This secured channel helps protect your search terms and your search results pages from being intercepted by a third party. This provides you with a more secure and private search experience.

To use search over SSL, visit https://encrypted.google.com/ each time you perform a search. Note that only Google web search is available over SSL, so other search products like Google Images and Google Maps are not currently available over SSL. When you’re searching over SSL, these properties may not appear in the left panel.

Now you can safely search for jobs while at work (grin)!

Note that this feature is only available for the .com domain.

Do you use it on a regular basis? What are your thoughts about this subject?

He currently finds PHP more interesting than any other thing in his life and spends way too much time in front of his PC creating websites and scripts like the IrisMVC framework in the hope they’ll help other people just as much as they help him.

You can easily reach him via his blog, or through social media such as Twitter or in the coding section of the v7n forums (most likely).

    Well I was not aware about the encrypted search. Thanks for the post, I’ll try a few encrypted searches now.
