How to Force Analytics Traffic Over SSL Using Analytify?

Are you concerned about securing your website’s analytics data, especially when your site is not HTTPS-enabled?

In the digital age, data security is paramount. For websites not using HTTPS, the concern often lies in whether their analytics data remains secure. Google Analytics, by default, encrypts data for HTTPS websites but not for those on HTTP. Fortunately, for users of the Analytify, there is a straightforward solution to enforce SSL encryption on analytics traffic, ensuring data security even on HTTP sites.

Why Force SSL for Analytics Traffic?

SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) encryption is critical for safeguarding data transmitted over the internet. By forcing analytics traffic over SSL, you protect sensitive data from potential interception or tampering, a concern particularly vital for HTTP sites.

Steps to Force Analytics Traffic Over SSL Using Analytify

Here’s how you can activate SSL encryption for your analytics traffic through the Analytify plugin:

  1. Navigate to Analytify Settings: Begin by logging into your WordPress dashboard. Go to Analytify >> Settings.

This simple yet effective measure ensures that your analytics data remains protected, contributing to the overall integrity and trustworthiness of your website.
