    HTTPS is HTTP with encryption. The only difference between the two protocols is that HTTPS uses TLS (SSL) to encrypt normal HTTP requests and responses. As a result, HTTPS is far more secure than HTTP. A website that uses HTTP has http:// in its URL, while a website that uses HTTPS has https://.

    If your customers enter sensitive data on that web page and it's the only HTTP, anyone has access to that data that may be listening. And those customers data is insecure. HTTPS is the solution to this problem. HTTPS uses an encryption protocol called Secure Sockets Layer, commonly known SSL.

    HTTP is unsecured while HTTPS is secured. HTTP sends data over port 80 while HTTPS uses port 443. HTTP operates at application layer, while HTTPS operates at transport layer. ... No encryption in HTTP, with HTTPS the data is encrypted before sending.
