Turn on HTTPS for your blog

If you want visitors to access your blog over HTTPS, you can turn on HTTPS and HTTPS redirect.

There are three main benefits to using HTTPS instead of HTTP to access your blog:

  • It helps check that your visitors open the correct website and aren’t being redirected to a malicious site.
  • It helps detect if an attacker tries to change any data sent from Blogger to the visitor.
  • It adds security measures that make it harder for other people to listen to your visitors’ conversations, track their activities, or steal their information.

To turn on HTTPS for your custom domain blog:

  1. Sign in to Blogger.
  2. In the top left, click the Down arrow Down Arrow.
  3. Select the blog to update.
  4. In the left menu, click Settings and then Basic.
  5. On the right, under "HTTPS" and "HTTPS Availability," select Yes.

Note: If you don't use a custom domain for your blog, HTTPS is automatically turned on for your blog and the HTTPS setting is hidden. 

Turn on HTTPS redirect

When you enable HTTPS redirect, visitors always reach the encrypted version of your blog at https://<your-blog>.blogspot.com.

  1. Sign in to Blogger.
  2. In the top left, click the Down arrow Down Arrow.
  3. Select the blog to update.
  4. In the left menu, click Settings and then Basic.
  5. On the right, under "HTTPS" and "HTTPS Redirect," select Yes.
