Chrome

HTTPS-only in Chrome is available for both desktop and mobile in Chrome 94 (released today!).

This feature is also under the flag chrome://flags/#https-only-mode-setting.

Edge

This is still considered an “experimental feature” in Edge, but is available in Edge 92.

  1. Visit edge://flags/#edge-automatic-https and enable Automatic HTTPS
  2. Hit the “Restart” button that appears to restart Microsoft Edge.

Visit edge://settings/privacy, scroll down, and turn on “Automatically switch to more secure connections with Automatic HTTPS”.

Safari

HTTPS is upgraded by default when possible in Safari 15, recently released September 20th, for macOS Big Sur and macOS Catalina devices. No setting changes are needed from the user.
