How Our Data Is Secured Over HTTPS - See It in Action using Charles Proxy

In this video, I am going to explain you how the request from a browser to the server works and why we need an SSL certificate to have HTTPS protocol to send any user information from the browser to the server.

In this case, we are going to first see how using a Proxy software I can see the network traffic going from the browser to the server and how the credentials are visible to the naked eye without any encryption.

Then, we will look at the same scenario using an HTTPS connection and understand how this is helpful.

Today, when getting an SSL certificate using CloudFlare and Let’s Encrypt is free, it is almost imperative to have your site transfer data over HTTPS.
