Google Encrypts All Gmail Messages After NSA Snooping

Google Encrypts All Gmail Messages After NSA Snooping
Rather than charge NSA for access to your account - thus making money - as Microsoft does of your hotmail accounts... Google has taken a move to head off the NSA by applying default encryption to all gmail accounts.*

Gmail HTTPS has been an option for several years but now there is no longer an option to turn it off. 

In addition to the data being encrypted when it travels from Google to you... the data is now also encrypted as it travels between Google's servers... putting a serious wrench in the NSA's eavesdropping plans. 

You don't need to do anything or make any changes, to benefit from this move by Google to protect you. 

Well Played, Google... well played!
