HTTP still being used
eBay uses HTTPS on its most critical pages, such as those where payment or address information is entered, but a lack of encryption on several sensitive pages still poses a concern for the privacy conscious.
Many pages on the site, which require user input or contain their personal info, are not HTTPS encrypted, according to security experts. The online auction house acknowledges the point but said it was in the process of making encryption ubiquitous across the site.
More specifically eBay does not currently use HTTPS on the My eBay dashboard, nor on business-to-customer message pages. A VPN can mitigate the risks that arise from the lack of HTTPS on these pages.
