Gmail Notifier Pro only uses HTTPS and secure connections when connecting to Gmail and other Google services.
HTTPS and SSL
HTTPS (Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure) uses HTTP (Hypertext Transfer Protocol) together with TLS/SSL (Transport Layer Security / Secure Sockets Layer)
to provide encrypted and secure connections. HTTPS can be used to send passwords and other sensitive
information over the Internet in a secure way. While HTTP use port 80 by default, HTTPS uses port 443 by default.
Gmail Notifier Pro & HTTPS
These are the communication protocols used by Gmail Notifier Pro when connecting to Gmail and other Google services:
Google Gmail Atom: HTTPS
Google Gmail IMAP: IMAP with SSL
Microsoft Live Hotmail: POP with SSL
Yahoo! Mail: IMAP with SSL
Google Calendar: HTTPS
Google Reader: HTTPS
RSS/Atom & Google News feeds: No passwords or sensitive information are transmitted for feeds. Supports both HTTP and HTTPS.

If automatic updates are used, Gmail Notifier Pro will also communicate with http://www.gmailnotifier.se/.
This communication is using HTTP without encryption on purpose. By not encrypting this communication, all users can verify that no sensitive information is being sent or reported
to this website. When performing automatic updates, there can also be a check for valid registration for users having a registered copy.
When communicating with the Google services, the passwords are always sent using encrypted connections.
Gmail Notifier Pro stores all passwords in the user folder using a strong encryption algorithm (AES-256).
