Abstract: In the present world scenario where data is meant to be protected from intruders and crackers, everyone has the fear to keep their private data safe. As the data is stored on servers accessed through websites by browsers, it’s the browsers, which act as a medium between a user and the server to send or receive data. As browsers send data in plain text, any data which is sent could easily be intercepted and used against someone. Hence this led to the use of Transport Layer Security (TLS) and Secure Socket Layer (SSL), which are cryptographic protocols designed to provide communication security over the Internet. A layer on top of SSL/TLS, support an encrypted mode, also known as HTTPS (HTTP Secure). Therefore, one of the main aspect of security lies in the website supporting HTTPS. Most websites have support for this encrypted mode and still we use an unencrypted mode of websites because a common user is unaware of the advancements in the field of technology. So to help us, in browsers, we have extensions or plug-ins to ease our life. This paper proposes the idea to implement the security measures in the web browsers.
