What happens when I connect to Skwirl.ca?
You enter our domain name (Skwirl.ca) in the address bar and three things happen
  • Our computer receives a request from your computer to talk
  • Our computer sets up a private communication which encrypts (garbles) the conversation between your computer and ours. If anybody managed to see our communication, the information going back and forth would appear as gibberish.
  • The address bar turns green (or the Skwirl.ca does, depending on your browser). This indicates that not only is the communication secure, but that both the website and the company behind it have been independently validated.
