Google reported that the amount of encrypted online traffic hitting its servers jumped in the past year in a sign of heightened interest in protecting information on the Internet.

Google introduced a new encryption, or HTTPS, section in a transparency report released on Tuesday to highlight the need to safeguard data online.

Slightly more than 75 percent of requests to Google servers were encrypted as of January in a jump from 50 percent a year earlier, according to the transparency report.

“Implementing encryption is not easy work,” Google “HTTPS evangelists” Rutledge Chin Feman and Tim Willis said in a blog post.

“But, as more people spend more of their time on the web, it’s an increasingly essential element of online security.”
