Today, OpenStreetMap has enabled encryption (SSL) to all of the openstreetmap.org website, thereby enhancing the privacy of its users.
You can now browse the site at https://openstreetmap.org (note the ‘https’). This means your browsing activity is secure from snooping.
OpenStreetMap stands with the Open Rights Group and the Electronic Frontier Foundation in asserting greater Internet freedom, including the right to individual privacy. With this action providing the highest quality Free/Open Data Geographic resource to everyone.
