Just on the heels of Google Co founder Larry Page’s complaint that US government is snooping in on Google servers, Google has announced that it is encrypting all of its emails to make them most secure. “This ensures that your messages are safe not only when they move between you and Gmail’s servers, but also as they move between Google’s data centres”, said the firm. The encryption will work even if the person is using a desktop, phone, tablet over a cable or a WiFi connection.
The most popular email service is now using the most secure https secure connection all the time, the company said. As you go about your day reading, writing and checking messages, there are tonnes of security measures running behind the scenes to keep your email safe, secure, and there whenever you need it, explained Google’s tech experts.
The measures were prompted after the revelations by Edward Snowden that US’s National Security Agency NSA has access to Google’s servers too, apart from many other internet companies.
