Google encrypts Gmail between data centers to keep the NSA out of your inbox

Google just announced that as of today, Gmail is more secure than ever before. Google says that Gmail will now use a secure HTTPS connection whenever you check or send email, regardless of where youre accessing Gmail from — be it your home network or public Wi-Fi — or what device youre using. Google made HTTPS encryption the default for its users back in 2010, but its continually making improvements wherever possible to keep out prying eyes. As an added barrier between you and the NSA, Google is making another change: every single email message Gmail users send or receive will now be encrypted as it moves internally between the companys data centers.
