You no longer need HTTPS Everywhere to set HTTPS by default! Major browsers now offer native support for an HTTPS only mode. Learn how to turn it on.

Read more about the sunset of HTTPS Everywhere.

Since we started offering HTTPS Everywhere, the battle to encrypt the web has made leaps and bounds. Now HTTPS is truly just about everywhere, and the web has largely switched from non-secure HTTP to the more secure HTTPS protocol. HTTP has serious problems that make it vulnerable to eavesdropping and content hijacking. HTTPS fixes most of these problems. That's why EFF, and many like-minded supporters, have been pushing for web sites to adopt HTTPS by default. As of 2021, about 90% of all web page visits were using HTTPS. This is a big win for encryption and security for everyone.

Encryption is critical for our privacy and security online. That’s why we litigate in courts to protect the right to encrypt, build technologies to encrypt the web, and it’s why we lead the fight against anti-encryption legislation like the EARN IT Act. If you'd like to join the fight, we hope you'll support EFF by becoming a member. We're a nonprofit that relies on people like you to help EFF’s technologists, attorneys, and activists protect privacy, security, and digital rights at a time when the world needs it most. Becoming an EFF donor helps us build more tools like HTTPS Everywhere.
