You don't get downvoted when you are not trusted; you get downvoted when your questions or answers are poorly written, off-topic, or just plain wrong.

comment Identifying suspicious encrypted traffic
It is good that Google uses TLS when they try to get new software version or to retrieve information about your Google+ account or anything like that. Otherwise it could be spied upon or altered by attackers. You should rejoice that such traffic is "encrypted". As for the port number, it does not really matter; in fact, using port 443 would be confusing if that which goes inside the TLS is not HTTP.

comment Are files hosted on cloud servers/websites/databases manually checked by people?
Password protection on file storage system is just an access control; the files still are there, ready to be read by any sysadmin on the server side. If you want a storage system where the sysadmins cannot read files, then the files must be encrypted on the client computer with a password or key that never goes to the server.

comment What is the collision likelihood of MD5 when non-numeric values are removed?
I don't know enough of your context to emit any recommendation. I suppose that you are trying, from a smartphone app, to obtain a kind of smartphone identifier that you wish to upload to a server of yours in order to recognize phones from each other. In that case, it seems to me that any attempt at anonymizing is hopeless, regardless of the function you use, basically because the phone can compute that function.
