Starting today, all traffic to Envato Market will be sent via HTTPS and will no longer use HTTP as a default means of communication. This has been a long road for Envato due to a few contributing factors (which we will be covering on the engineering blog in the future) however we are extremely happy that we’ve finally been able to complete this complex engineering task and make Envato Market a more secure place for everyone.
What does this mean for our community?
Rolling out HTTPS for all of the marketplaces gives you confidence that your request data is protected in transit against anyone snooping on the network and cannot be intercepted without your knowledge - no matter where you are on the marketplaces (we previously only had HTTPS enabled for all signup, login and checkout processes however this change is making sure all of Envato Market is covered). Using HTTPS ensures that the server you are communicating with is who you expect and you’re not sending data to an unknown malicious source. Another positive side effect of this change is that it unlocks functionality, like HTTP/2 support, that we can implement to decrease response times by using features like request multiplexing.
What should I do if I find an issue?
