To encrypt all of the traffic between your current web-browser & Gmail thus a traffic scanner on, say, the local network & a public WLAN cannot decipher it:

  1. Access Gmail utilizing https ://mail .google .com/ . 
  2. Mention the 's' at the end of "https". 
  3. Type "https://mail .google .com/" into your current browser's address bar manually; and then, you will create a bookmark. 

Do look out for people in your own back reading along ! The e-mails are not encrypted on your own computer's screen, & people may find you typing your own password, too. Gmail two-step authentication provides a few protection from the later being exploited.

Encrypted HTTPS connectivity always & automatically : 

  1.  Follow the Settings link in Gmail. 
  2. Go to the General category. 
  3. Make sure that Always use https is selected under Web browser connection.
  4. Click on Save Changes.
