    Hello All,

    I am new to WebOS and my new Veer (Came from Blackberry) but I wanted to make sure I am not putting my account logins over insecure links. Does anyone know if the LinkedIn and Facebook accounts that one would make via the accounts location uses HTTPS to login? Also, does the Exchange accounts use Exchange Active sync (such that it also uses HTTPS)? I would prefer to leave Wifi on so that I can get a fast connection at AT&T hotspots, but I could not find anything that stated if this is secure or open to programs like FireSheep?

    Thanks

    I believe a lot of people actually have issues with facebook if they have the (on the site) "use https" setting turned on. Most here have had to disable that to get sync working properly. I don't know if perhaps that's been remedied on the newer os version on the veer.

    You can also use the LinkedIn app available through the app catalog. It's secure.

    My Concern is is mainly the Contacts updated as I would think those sync in the background. I'm not entirely sure as I have only been using WebOS for a grand total of 4 hours, but I figure it's better to check.

    I know EAS uses https, and I am fairly positive Google does as well. Facebook may or may not. Not sure about others. It depends on the service.

    I just got off a chat with HP support and it looks to NOT be secured with SSL.
    The support supervisor stated that the default login is via http for facebook, twitter, and LinkedIn.

    He did say that he would forward this up the chain as a feature request.
