HTTPS, Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure, is a network protocol based on the HTTP protocol, intended for the secure transfer of hypertext data. It is a secure version of HTTP that uses SSL/TLS encryption to protect communication between client and server.

HTTPS is used to transmit sensitive information securely, such as login data, credit card information, among others. By using encryption, HTTPS protects the integrity and confidentiality of data during transfer, thus reducing the risk of interception attacks or data manipulation by unauthorized third parties.
