LibraryThing has added SSL encryption to all pages that ask for private data.
That means the data you submit for signing in—signing up, changing your password, changing your email, etc.—is securely encrypted between you and LibraryThing. Depending on your browser, this will show up as a “lock” symbol, or just a change in the LibraryThing URL from http:// to https://.
SSL encryption for private data is currently available on LibrayThing.org and all subdomains.
Spalding adds that LibraryThing intends to go all-SSL or all-SSL for signed-in members only, “as soon as practicable.”
