    Just how secure is this assuming there is no encryption setup between client and access point?

    There will be encrpytion between the client and ap on a connection to a secure site because there is encryption between the client and site. That's the whole point of an https site....

    Remember that if you were using a regular wired connection that normal traffic wouldn't be encrypted either. Just because you're using a wireless connection doesn't change protocols such as SSL.
