The Uncertain Effects of HTTPS Adoption on Access to Information Worldwide
With the release of Google Chrome version 68, visiting an unencrypted ("HTTP") site will prompt a "not secure" warning. The update reflects the gradual migration from HTTP to the more secure HTTPS encryption protocol, https://letsencrypt.org/stats/#percent-pageloads and while the benefits for users' privacy and security are significant, "the implications of this global trend on Internet filtering and access to information are mixed," writes Berkman Klein Center Research Associate Casey Tilton, as government censors must take an all-or-nothing approach to blocking websites that can result in an "overblocking" of certain sites. In Iran, for example, the move to HTTPS has increased access to information since "the Iranian government has not blocked the entirety of Wikipedia since the platform transitioned to HTTPS in June 2015 despite the censors having blocked hundreds of specific Persian-language articles before 2015." Turkey, however, has blocked Wikipedia in its entirety since April 2017 over "a few offending articles."

"For example, before Wikipedia implemented HTTPS in 2015, governments could filter specific Wikipedia articles while allowing access to the vast majority of content on Wikipedia," Tilton writes. "HTTPS makes this type of fine-tuned filtering very difficult, which poses a challenge to government censors. Now that social media platforms and many news sites are encrypted, censors have a hard decision to make: do they block the entirety of popular platforms like Wikipedia, Facebook, or Medium because of a few offending articles or pages? Or do they allow all of the content to remain accessible?...If the current popularity and ubiquity of social media platforms are any indication, the overall share of content hosted by centralized, encrypted social media and publishing platforms will likely continue to grow in the future. And if so, it will become increasingly difficult for a government to censor the content it deems objectionable while avoiding the collateral damage that comes with blocking entire platforms."

Securing Web Sites Made Them Less Accessible
In 2018?  Yes.  In rural Uganda, where I was improvising an introduction to web development for a class of vocational students, that’s the reality.  They can have a computer lab full of Dell desktops running Windows or rows of Raspberry Pis running Ubuntu or whatever setup there is, but when satellites in geosynchronous earth orbit are your only source of internet, you wait.  And wait.  And wait.
