HTTPS Everywhere Firefox extension: Encrypt the Web

HTTPS Everywhere is a Firefox extension produced as a collaboration between The Tor Project and the Electronic Frontier Foundation. It encrypts your communications with a number of major websites.

Many sites on the web offer some limited support for encryption over HTTPS, but make it difficult to use. For instance, they may default to unencrypted HTTP, or fill encrypted pages with links that go back to the unencrypted site.

The HTTPS Everywhere extension fixes these problems by rewriting all requests to these sites to HTTPS.

The plugin currently works for:

  • Google Search
  • Wikipedia
  • Twitter
  • Facebook
  • The New York Times
  • The Washington Post
  • Paypal
  • EFF
  • Tor
  • Ixquick.
