I activated the checkbox named "require secure transport" in the options file, found in the MySQL Workbench.
How do I know if MySQL "require secure transport" is working? Should I use command line at this point?

You can use a query on the server to get the variable
SHOW VARIABLES LIKE 'require_secure_transport';
Once your connection is open you can look in the session info view, in the lower left corner to get your connection details, including the SSL status.
For a bit more info use the
Server Status section in the management/administration part of your SQL IDE session. This text is at the lower end of the status page.
