July 1, 2021: HTTPS Requirement
Today, it is exceedingly rare to have non-sensitive web traffic. By always using HTTPS connections, people's changing expectations for how websites handle sensitive traffic make everyone safer. By always using HTTPS connections, web services don’t have to make a subjective judgment call about what’s “sensitive”. By always using HTTPS connections, there is less room for error and deployment is simpler and more consistent across all of your environments.
Some modern web browsers now have default behavior that does not allow certain authentication schemes over HTTP. As a result, Gimmal now requires using HTTPS with Gimmal Records for any version of the software. The version of Gimmal Records you're using doesn't change the behavior of the browser with HTTP. The exact behavior when using HTTP depends on your choice of web browser and its related security configuration. For these reasons, Gimmal will provide limited, best-effort support for HTTP and will require HTTPS to be configured before troubleshooting any support tickets.
