The Wikimedia Foundation today announced its response to the leaks regarding the NSA’s XKeyscore program: turning on HTTPS by default for all Wikimedia projects. The organization is starting by flipping the https switch for all logged-in users on August 21. The crowdsourcing platform says it has been planning to make the move for a while now; it was “considered for this year’s official roadmap” and has been on the unofficial roadmap since native HTTPS was enabled in October 2011.
