Protection is the most important benefit from HTTPS; every piece of information is important, but when it is e-commerce or finance related then degree of protection is more expected.
Google said their newer version of HTTPS URL will ensure more data authenticity and confidentiality between contents publishers and viewers. Google treated HTTPS as a cornerstone for internet security policy.
