Accessing a website is all about loading something from an external server to your device. Currently, it’s a good and common practice for sites to use a protected HTTPS connection while interacting with your device. However, some sites or resources which your browser tries to load, don’t use it by default connecting using HTTP. As a result, your data is transmitted via an unsafe connection. It is better to avoid it, and here is how 1Blocker can help.


You can create a rule that prevents Safari from connecting via HTTP. In other words, the browser will always try to connect via HTTPS if possible.
