Adding the ‘s’ at the end of ‘http’ tells your computer to start doing a bunch of anti-hacker things without bothering you.
Namely, to start using encryption so the stuff sent is scrambled into a hacker unreadable mess, that both you and the other site can read.
Also it checks with another computer your computer really trusts called a Certificate Authority, to make sure the other guy really is who he says he is.
