What is the purpose of using https in the URL address?

The purpose of using https in the URL address is to ensure security, safety, data protection and privacy of the information exchanged between web server and browser.

If the website doesn’t display ‘S’ at the end of HTTP label, it means that the webpage data is not secure and is unsafe to visit the website. Hence, it is always advisable to authenticate and secure the transmitted data by installing SSL Certificate on the website’s server.
