How To Enable HTTPS To Secure your Blogger Blog?

Google Blogger is a great platform for creating any kinds of blog. It is serving their all products free of cost. But there are biggest security issues in Google Blogger platform because BlogSpot is not secured for commercial use. 

If you see WordPress CMS is more secured than Blogger BlogSpot. Through Blogger is more flexible than any other platform but people don’t build their commercial site on this platform, because only for security option. 

For example: 

In Blog based eCommerce site if you go for payment then your Debit or Credit card may be hacked easily. As a result commercial site don’t rely on BlogSpot.

However Google is working since 2008 to encrypt the connections between users and Google servers. Though they have successfully encrypted Search, Gmail, Drive, and many other products but finally they have rollout of HTTPS support for serving encrypted connection in their BlogSpot. Though Google serve their Blog on own hosted server as a result now it become more secured by adding an extra secured layer on their security.

  • If a bad actor tries to change any data sent from Blogger to a blog visitor then HTTPS helps to detect it instantly.
