    Thanks Matt,
    That’s really good to know and simple to fix.
    So many of us, who travel and use open networks, don’t realize how vulnerable we are to this kind of attack. Thanks again for bringing this information up.

    Great… I just did this tweak 2 days ago as it seemed “reasonable” to use https… but your tip emphsized its importance 🙂

    Matt,
    Its a useful tip. I did know that there is such feature in Gmail. I will now use it to avoid any bad experiences.

    Well, bless your socks for that one! Really good to know.
    Thanks!

    Matt,

    Thank you SOOOOO much for this valuable information – it’s hard for those of us who are honest to even imagine breaking into someone else’s email account or anything else that doesn’t belong to us. *sigh* But we don’t live in an ideal world, so we have to learn all the ways to protect ourselves.

    By the way, the same thing goes for your cPanel logins – if you always use the https login and :2083 instead of :2082 then you are more secure there, too. 🙂

    Have joyous holidays,

    Donna

    Hey Matt, Great info on the Gmail, I have had a problem with Yahoo
    but never Gmail. This little tweek will help insure that when I am on
    the road. Thanks, Timothy Millar “The Leprechaun”

    I was surprised to find that neither option was selected.
    Thanks for the great suggestion.

    Hey Matt, these are the kinds of things I love short and sweet. Thanks for the heads up.

    Cheers Matt.
    I took the liberty of passing this post around (not that I want everyone to know why I am so smart LOL)

    Hi Matt,
    Found this nugget of information from a friend over at better networker. As you can see, I use gmail and I’m going right now to change it. Thanks so much for the tip! 🙂

    Thanks Matt, You are right!
    Access Gmail over HTTPS and stop getting hacked!
    This is a very helpful Tipp also for New User!

    Thanks a lot for such important info.

    I’m gonna do it for sure right now, never know when something bad can happen.

    Regards…

    Great information here! I’m going to do it right now, actually.

  15. December 6, 2008 at 12:20 am

    This isn’t really needed if you only access Gmail from home or other trusted location.

      Hi Andrew,
      true, but as it only takes a minute to make the change, I reckon it’s worth making sure it’s done just in case you do need it in the future and forget…
      🙂
      cheers,
      Matt

    Hi Matt,
    Thanks a lot for informing us about this.
    I knew about the https security thing, but i didn’t
    realize it has on google too until now.
    You really did save the day 😉
    Till then,
    Mike
