    Hi, when embedding an image via our CMS, right below the “Insert into post” button you can set the Protocol to HTTPS (Default is HTTP).

    Replacing already existing image-tags on your website may require using a search/replace tool, such as Better Search Replace.

    Hope this helps. Let us know if you have any further questions.

    Could you please explain me why the http/https protocol scheme is not automatically managed by the plugin? I’ve switched to https recently and it seems a little unintuitive having to decide which protocol to use each time I insert an image.

    Thanks in advance for your attention.

    If you manually enter the URLs of the images, you can simply use // instead of either https:// or http://.
    Alternatively, note that this is a known issue in WP in general, all images that are included in your WP Media library, even non-Cloudinary ones, have their URLs value, which can be either HTTP or HTTPS.
    You might want to consider using a 3rd party plugin which can take care of your URLs, so you can actually add HTTP URLs to your posts, and these plugins will automatically replace http with https when needed.
