If you go a public caffee shop, they has free wifi. How could do sure your infomration cannot being read by a second person?

Well, in HTTP1.1, you cannot. With HTTPS, it'll encpty your data and only the server is talking to can decode your data.

And how is thought you is talking to the real server but actually you is not. MITM would redirect you to their server and decode the message and read, then send to the real server. One thing in HTTPS to prevent is Auth. To make sure is talking to the right server.
