How Do I Change From HTTP to HTTPS in WordPress?
HTTPS is a security protocol that encrypts data between your browser and the website you’re visiting. When you visit a website that uses HTTPS, the website can’t see your browser’s address (the string of numbers and letters that identifies your computer).
Instead, the website sees a unique encryption code, which means that no one else can intercept your data.
HTTPS is the default protocol on many websites, including WordPress. However, if you’re using an older version of WordPress, you might not have the option to switch to HTTPS. To change from HTTP to HTTPS in WordPress, you’ll need to follow these steps:
