Turn On Secure Browsing (https) in Facebook

Secure Browsing (https) is an opt-in security feature. When you turn this feature on, your traffic (i.e. all of your activity) on Facebook becomes encrypted, making it harder for anyone else to access your Facebook information without your permission.  This feature is not currently available for mobile browsing.
To turn on Secure Browsing (https):

  1. Go to your Security Settings page (Account > Account Settings > Security)
  2. Click on the Secure Browsing section
  3. Check the box provided and save your changes
Please note that when you turn on secure browsing, any other active Facebook sessions will be terminated. This means that if you’re logged into Facebook on another web browser, you will be prompted to re-enter your login information.
Once you turn on secure browsing, the address bar in your browser should begin with “https://”. Please note that if your browser warns you of a certificate error, it could be an indication that someone is tampering with your connection. Do not continue. [source]
