HTTPS coming to all Blogspot domain blogs in late April

In September 2015 Blogger introduced the option to enable HTTPS on blogspot.com blogs. Today Blogger announced that HTTPS will be enabled on all blogspot.com blogs in late April.

(Note: this only applies to blogs on blogspot.com, not blogs with a custom domain)

Why is HTTPS a good thing?

* "it makes it harder for bad actors to steal information or track the activities of blog authors and visitors"

* "it helps check that visitors open the correct website and aren’t being redirected to a malicious location"

* "it helps detect if a bad actor tries to change any data sent from Blogger to a blog visitor"

What do you need to do if you have a Blogger blog?

If you have a blogspot.com blog, you don't need to do anything to enable HTTPS

Some gadgets, scripts or embedded content may not support HTTPS. If there is "mixed content" on any of your blog pages, visitors may get an error message when visiting that page.

Coming in Late April! All visitors will be able to view your Blogspot domain blogs over an encrypted connection by visiting https ://<your-blog>.blogspot.com. Existing links and bookmarks to your blogs will continue to work. As part of this change, the HTTPS Availability setting will go away, and your blogs will always have an HTTPS version.
