Can I use Full encryption mode with Free account?

Or, I can only use Flexible with Free account?

You can use Full with free account. You should also only use Full (strict) to keep your traffic secure

To use Full encryption mode on my WordPress website, what should I do?
If I change WordPress URL and Site URL in Admin to “https://…”, then I cannot go back to admin login.
And my website shows “ERR_TOO_MANY_REDIRECT”.
Please advise how to use Cloudflare properly when I select FULL.

Thanks

What happens if you have just Full Mode?

My website shows “Index of…”. I can’t login to my admin panel. so I changed to my site url back to “http://” for now.

Seems like the server isn’t able to handle the HTTPS requests

What should I ask about this to my IT department?

Ask them why, when you configure it to be HTTPS it shows the “Index of…” page

Now, I can use Full. Can I use Full Strict with Free plan?

Yes, and it’s the only setting you should use. Make sure the SSL certificate on your origin is valid and not self-signed.

I will look into Full Strict.
When I see the “Connection is secure” right now and click this, I can see “Issued By: let’s Encrypt”, not “Cloudflare”. is this because my mode is Full?

Cloudflare edge certificates will be from LetsEncrypt, Google Trust Services (GTS) or Sectigo - Cloudflare branded Digicert certificates are not being issued any longer.

Edge certificates (which is what clients see when they connect to Cloudflare) have nothing to do with your SSL/TLS mode (which determines how Cloudflare connects to your origin server). See…

Thanks for the article.
I read that and then find out the article about Cloudflare IP addresses.

So to use Cloudflare SSL correctly, does my IT dept. need to allow IP addresses?
