If you’re geeky and keep up with all the tech news, you probably already know that Facebook added an SSL feature, but for everybody else: You can make your Facebook profile more secure by turning this option on, and here’s how to do it.

All we’re going to do is head into the Facebook profile settings and then check a box that forces the use of SSL encryption whenever possible. Easy!
