    Is it necessary to use https to embed in Facebook?

    Will it work if I embed using http? For all browsers and apps?

    Hi tomchen,

    You can embed the form to facebook using either protocol ( or not secure or secured.

    BUT where it will matter is when the URL for the facebook page where the form was used. 


    If the URL access by a user is https ( but the form embedded is not ( -- the browser will fail or will have a security error issue.

    From what I have been seeing lately, Facebook had be redirecting already to the https protocol by default as part of it security access.

    Hope this answers your inquiry. Thanks.
