How can you tell if http or https is being used?

Hi, Iro,

I know for me, when https is being used, it seems like we would see https at the beginning of the web address.  Such as:

http://www.schoolname.edu

This website might be the school website open to the public.  For the one for students and teachers, the school may have:

https://my.schoolname.edu


This would show a more secure server for the students, if I recall correctly.

Good luck, Iro.  I hope this helps.
