It’s really difficult to crack by hackers.

Google defines https layers in their blog post:

“Data sent using HTTPS is secured via Transport Layer Security protocol (TLS), which provides three key layers of protection:

  1. ENCRYPTION

  2. DATA INTEGRITY

    data cannot be modified or corrupted during transfer, intentionally or otherwise, without being detected.

  3. AUTHENTICATION

    proves that your users communicate with the intended website. It protects against man-in-the-middle attacks and builds user trust, which translates into other business benefits.”
