With the latest release of PYBOSSA (v2.3.7) we have included support for web push notifications. While you can use this feature with non full HTTPS sites, we recommend you to enable it for your server. For this reason, we will enable by default HTTPS in Crowdcrafting.org at the end of May 2017. Also, because we care about safety.
Crowdcrafting and HTTPS
We have had https enabled in Crowdcrafting for almost 2 years now, however we never forced users to use it by default as some projects are using data coming from http servers (or JS libraries) breaking their projects.
Debugging your project
Just type https://crowdcrafting.org instead of http. As simple as that. Then, double check that your project works.
If you have any problems, contact us.
Until when you have time to debug it
Until the 31 of May of 2017. If you need help, contact us. We’ll be happy to help you and see how we can solve your problems.
Why? Why are you doing this to me?
Well, we are doing this because it will make you and Crowdcrafting safer. Also, because we want to give you the possibility to engage with your community using the new web push notifications feature of PYBOSSA.
Also because browsers will be warning users about unsecure input fields by the end of the year, so we want to provide the best possible experience for you and your volunteers.
Thus, go test, and enjoy that your project and volunteers will be safe from spies!
