NO! Https (HyperTextTranferProtocol-Secure: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HTTPS) secures, as its name said, only the content from tampering but NOT the the IP (or whatever) between Host-Client. If you are a techie you should take a look at 2 following Http-keywords:
1) User-Agent: ...... (Browser to Host).
2) Set-Cookie: .....(Host to Browser).
The User-Agent tells the host what computer you have, what browser you use and on what OS your system runs. Here you can fool the host with faked CPU, faked browser and faked OS.
The Set-Cookie reqests your browser to set-up a cookie (here: last to 19-Feb.2012!). That is the whole secrecy: If a cookie is designed to send IP-Formation to its master it will do. Therefore you can't login to your email account (e.g. Yahoo/Hotmail/Gmail) if you "kill" this directive. Here is an example of SET-COOKIE
Set-Cookie: CV=T=1298115537; expires=Sun, 19-Feb-2012 11:38:57 GMT; path=/; domain=my.yahoo.com
See the "expired date"? This cookie will live inside my computer til Sunday, 19 Feb. 2012

This is precisely correct. If you are using just a run of the mill https proxy, only browser traffic running through port 443 would be protected. Nothing else would be.blackraven wrote:As Voodoo said
I would look at using a VPN instead, I don't think all your internet traffic would be encrypted if you were to use an HTTPS proxy, as wouldn't the ISP be able to view traffic not sent by browser?
