I suggest that...

Use https by default

Use https by default (i.e. if the user enters a URL without a protocol such as [1]) do not redirect https URLs such as [2] to http pages. For background, please see [3]-[6]

    Thanks for your suggestion to improve the ORCID Registry. We have some progress to report on this.

    We now have https as the default for the API and ORCID websites, and are working to include only https links across all sites and automated emails.

    We’ve also suggested that the https version of ORCID iDs be the encouraged display format in our iD display guidelines — see more at https://orcid.org/blog/2017/02/16/draft-display-guidelines-ids-articles-open-comment

    Warm regards,
    ORCID Community Team
