Google Encrypted Search Beta Officially Rolled Out

Google has made official announcement of Google Encrypted Search Beta.Users who want to access the encrypted Google web search can point their browsers to to do so. The technology,which is being used in Encrypted Google Search is known as Secure Sockets Layer (SSL),it encrypts the data traffic between the user’s computer and the Internet server they want to access.

Https sites are widely known in the financial sector, on shopping sites and during log ins.The session-wide encryption ensures that information entered in a session is safe from being intercepted by another user in the computer network.

When you search on, an encrypted connection is created between your browser and Google. This secured channel helps protect your search terms and your search results pages from being intercepted by a third party on your network. The service includes a modified logo to help indicate that you’re searching using SSL and that you may encounter a somewhat different Google search experience, but as always, remember to check the start of the address bar for “https” and your browser lock indicators.

Google said on it official blog – “Today’s release comes with a “beta” label for a few reasons. First, it currently covers only the core Google web search product. To help avoid misunderstanding, when you search using SSL, you won’t see links to offerings like Image Search and Maps that, for the most part, don’t support SSL at this time. Also, since SSL connections require additional time to set up the encryption between your browser and the remote web server, your experience with search over SSL might be slightly slower than your regular Google search experience. What won’t change is that you will still get the same great search results.”

Google will still maintain search data to improve your search quality and to provide better service. Searching over SSL doesn’t reduce the data sent to Google — it only hides that data from third parties who seek it
