Privacy and security on the Internet have been major news topics recently. As a top 50 website in the U.S., we take our responsibility to provide a safe and secure service very seriously. With that in mind, we are very happy to announce that Quizlet is now serving 100% of its traffic over HTTPS. The HTTPS you see in the URL of your browser means when you go to quizlet.com, you're guaranteed to be getting the genuine Quizlet website, and your interactions with us cannot be spied on by others watching your internet connection. This applies to our website, and also our official Android and iPhone apps.

Serving all of our traffic over HTTPS is especially great for schools, because many internet connections at schools are run with un-secured WiFi. With a freely joinable WiFi network, a clever student or teacher can configure their computer to observe all traffic passing over the network. With HTTPS in place, all interactions with Quizlet will be undecipherable by that observer. HTTPS is the same system that many sensitive websites, like banks, use to secure their traffic.

Converting our full site, with its millions of different pages, was no easy task. We had been preparing it for a while, and completed the final parts in the last two weeks. Our newest engineering hire Miguel, along with veteran Quizletter Karoun, led the charge to complete the conversion. Great job, you two!

  97. NHW12345

    I don't think it's nice to rank members of this site. Some had the top scores like first, second, or third. Others are low scored like 22nd or 199th. You see, on a scale of 1 to 1,000, the position of members doesn't matter to me, whether its their comments or the views of YouTube videos. Even in Quizlet, we have to be appreciated and approved, even adored, like you guys! I don't really care what my rank is- I'm #PerfectJustTheWayIAm :D

  98. NHW12345

    HTTPS= Hyper-Text Transfer Protocol Secure (Good thinking, Team Quizlet!) We're secured because of you. Thank you very much! #AllHailQuizlet!
