The HTTPS Referral Problem

When someone clicks a link from one site to another, a bit of data is also sent, telling the new website the referral source. SSL is an encryption that can be added to a website to prevent someone from seeing that and other data from your session on a website. SSL encrypted sites have a lock in the address bar and will show an HTTPS:// before the URL.
