Tip: access Engagor through a secured connection

When surfing the internet, you might already have noticed that some url’s are introduced by a bunch of letters and punctuation marks: http://. This is the HyperText Transfer Protocol for communication between a web server and a web browser (like Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer, Google Chrome…). Never mind this technical part 🙂 What’s important is that you can also use https (HyperText Transfer Protocol Secure), which is an extension of the http-protocol that provides an encryption of the communication.

Now, why would this be useful?

Let’s compare it to an example of probably everyone’s childhood. You write an encrypted letter to your friend that only you and (s)he know the key of. This means no one else can understand what you are talking about. The same goes for https. The communication between web server and web browser is encrypted, so that an outsider (maybe someone spying or eavesdropping) can’t possibly know what data is being transferred.

And why is this relevant to Engagor?

As we want you to feel safe using Engagor and to meet the demands of big company regulations, you can also access the Engagor app through this secured connection, https. How to? Just enter https://engagor.com or go to your personal settings to indicate that you always want to access Engagor through a secured connection.

Just wanted to let you know!
