The question was asked at http://vendorsupport.paragonrels.com/... about when we can expect HTTPS image support and we're all still waiting on a reply. This is becoming a key issue and just to put the flashlight on it, here's why:

Google's blog calling it an SEO ranking factor- https://webmasters.googleblog.com/201...

Chrome security warnings- https://security.googleblog.com/2016/...

It really isn't that hard to deal with the solution on your end. I get that it's not an overnight thing but this question was asked a year ago and it's been an SEO issue even longer.

I think a lot of us need an answer and a timeline to know if we need to go through the effort of either switching systems or redeveloping our sites to deal with it.

We are investigating what needs to be done to support images via HTTPS. We do not have a time frame for enabling SSL / HTTPS for our image servers. I will keep this post updated as we work through the process.

It really is important that this be taken care of ASAP. We have begun switching all sites over to total https. And with https://letsencrypt.org/ it is cheap. In fact, many server configs can utilize their service in an automatic way. No good reason not to.

I want to chime in. If you currently post a link on facebook that is mixed (ssl with non ssl assets) the non ssl assets are blocked when a user follows said link using the andraoid/iphone facebook app. We NEED it

I would like to +1 this as well. It's absolutely imperative that this become a priority ASAP. I see the images are being served off Amazon CloudFront CDN which makes it even easier for you to add SSL support.

Is there an update on this? It's been almost 2 months since your reply. The same question is being brought up in separate threads too. Please visit https://aws.amazon.com/cloudfront/cus... to learn more about enabling SSL on custom domains at Amazon CloudFront CDN.
