This actually doesn’t protect you against hackers. It makes it HARDER to hack but a determined hacker with access to either the site hosting the HTTPS site or to your network could easily hack HTTPS connection. Look up man in the middle attacks if you want a better explanation. BUT with that said its still FAR FAR better to ONLY use HTTPS vs HTTP because your typical hacker isn’t going to have this type of access.
Now if we want to take nation state sponsored level hackers well that’s an entirely different matter.
