#HootTip: How to Enable HTTPS Secure Mode in HootSuite
HootSuite makes it easy to log into your account from any computer. As with online banking or shopping, your social media management may require more heightened security, so HootSuite supports HTTPS secure mode (Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure). By turning on this feature in your HootSuite dashboard, you can rest assured that your information will remain safe and secure over any internet connection, just like when you are doing your banking online.To help you get acquainted with this functionality, here is a handy #HootTip.
Enabling HTTPS secure mode
HTTPS – Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure – encrypts your information on the web so that it is not “visible” to those with the desire to seek it out. This will prevent any unwanted onlookers who make their way into an unsecured network from gaining access to your account. In English? This the “locked door” that protects your information and keeps it private.
1. Hover over the Launch Bar on the left and select Settings.
