Adding “s” only tells your computer to use another method in connecting to site if the site set it up. The difference is the connection is encrypted so hackers can’t listen in and checks you’re connected to the real thing, not hacker sitting on the wire between you and the real thing.

There’s also an option to check you’re really you and not the hacker with your password connecting from another computer, but that is rarely used because it’s too much effort for everyone.
