HTTPS, the lock icon in the address bar, an encrypted website connection — it’s known as many things. Knowing what it means is important, as it has serious implications banking online, shopping, and avoiding phishing.
Someone wrote this on a wiki. What does it mean? "Truly HTTPS"?
On Google play links, we don't want to use https. Very few things on the wiki are truly https and we want them to be highlighted as a secure link. As you stated on your edit, Google will redirect to a secure link.
I've been using HTTPS Everywhere with Firefox. developed by eff. It tries to force all your browsing connection to HTTPS if it's available.
There's a version for Firefox, Chrome, and Opera.
