Are requests in API Connector HTTPS-encrypted?

This is a literal question but I’m also asking for advice.
My app (not yet deployed) will be sending sensitive data to an external server with the API connector, and I’m wondering if it’s HTTPS-encrypted. (didn’t find anything in the docs about it.) I’m also using JWT for auth, but I know this doesn’t mean much if HTTPS isn’t used.
If it isn’t, is there anything I can do to make it HTTPS-encrypted, or are there any alternatives I can use while still having my site on Bubble? Or is Bubble not a good solution when I have to send sensitive data to external servers?

On Bubble side yes… but this also depend of the API you are calling!


Thanks for the response! It’s good to know that it’s HTTPS on Bubble’s side. What do you mean by “API that I’m calling”? I’m sending data to a server that belongs to my client and I have confidence that it will be handled properly from then on. So if the request from Bubble is HTTPS-encrypted, this should be all well and good, right? Or is there something I’m missing?

If the server you are sending the request is HTTP and not HTTPS, the communication between both is not encrypted.


Got it, thank you!

Hey @unstew , take a look at this documentation: Security reference - Functionality Reference
