The swap to HTTPS offers users further cyber security to get all the Forex information they need to trade.
Barcelona — November 15, 2016 — FXStreet, the leading Forex information website that reaches 15 million users per year, announces today the switch to HTTPS.
FXStreet is one of the first Forex media websites to put up the lock icon and an extra “s” next to its URL on the browser’s address bar to guarantee the secureness of the website.
What does it mean to be HTTPS?
Once you visit an HTTPS site, you will be protected against malicious activities and content alteration because it means encryption, data integrity and authenticity.
The encryption guarantees you that there’s no one that might be spying on the content as it goes from the server to your device. The data integrity assures you that the data from the server has not been modified by any third-party. Authenticity means that the site that is loading is the one that you wanted to visit.
Our main reason to bet for HTTPS is because we take very seriously the safety of our visitors and that’s why we decided to go HTTPS. Our mission is to offer a secure site where traders can find high-quality and objective information to trade with full confidence.
In words of our CEO Carolina May, “security is a top priority for us. Switching to HTTPS made our site safer for our users. Data received by the user cannot be corrupted and information received by FXStreet is encrypted. We did a step forward towards security on the internet and we hope this will benefit our audience.
Our CTO Javier Hertfelder confirms that “with the switch to HTTPS, FXStreet has added an extra security layer that will benefit users and partners, increasing, even more the level of trust in our brand”.
