Gmail Security Settings

If you want to stop people from snooping in your Gmail when you're using a public WiFi connection, you should use an option that Google began offering last month ; a security setting that will switch your Gmail use to an encrypted protected connection.

When you log in to Gmail, click "Settings" link at the top right of the page, scroll down until you see a "Browser connection" category and click the button next to "Always use https." From then on, your Gmail sign-in and everything else you read or write at this site will be digitally scrambled as it flows from Gmails servers to your browser and back. This is in fact a great feature of GMail, which make sure that your private, personal and intimate mails are not being read by a man in the middle of the network.
