Newsweek reports that as of February 2017, more than half of all Internet traffic is now encrypted thanks to HTTPS-enabled sites. The free browser extension (https://www.eff.org/https-everywhere) HTTPS Everywhere  can help extend this protection further by enhancing the encryption support offered by partly HTTPS-enabled sites.
