HTTPS

We’ve heard from a lot of users that they wanted to connect to Codecademy securely, and now you can. Today we shipped full HTTPS support for the Codecademy site: https://www.codecademy.com

As a Codecademy learner, all of your login credentials and other browsing activity are now encrypted. This means attackers can’t snoop on your internet traffic to intercept your Codecademy password, or observe what you are doing while logged in.

The transition to HTTPS has been a bit tricky for us because our website embeds user-created websites in our learning environments (see the Learn Ruby on Rails course for example). This means that our HTTPS connection status is impacted by the contents of those users’ projects. We have done our best to make sure we are loading secure versions of resources like scripts, stylesheets, and images wherever possible.

If you have been on the platform for a long time, you may find certain images in your old code are no longer loading—this is a restriction put in place by web browsers. Please replace them with an image available at an https:// URL to fix the problem.

If you find any issues with the HTTPS version of the site, please let us know! Please reach out to us through our help site.
