How can your Cyclos data be intercepted?

Any information transmitted to and from the internet can be intercepted by other users on the same network. When using "http" the data is not encrypted, it is sent in plain text. This means your login details, passwords, or even credit card information can be read by anyone that can access it.

The biggest risk areas are when you use public WiFi. Anyone on the same public WiFi network can potentially intercept data transmitted by other users. Mobile connections are reportedly just as bad - because data is literally transmitted through the air and vulnerable to being intercepted.

What is an SSL certificate?

SSL stands for Secure Sockets Layer, a global standard security technology, or to put it simply: an extra layer of security. An SSL certificate is a type of digital certificate that provides authentication for a website.

SSL securely encrypts any data that is sent between your visitor's web browser and the web hosting server. This means any information you submit (including payment details and passwords) will be encrypted during transit, and therefore cannot be intercepted and stolen.

How safe is your Cyclos data?

Any website that uses "http" in the address is not using a SSL certificate and is insecure. On the other hand, any site that has "https" in the address is using a SSL certificate.

These days the insecure "http" site will often be labeled insecure or have a grey appearance in the browser address bar, while a website using a SSL certificate will show a padlock icon, often in a reassuring green color.
