Not secure on iOS - fine on Mac

Our site ( is secure when using Safari on Mac, but Not secure when opened in Safari on iPhone or iPad. It was fine a few month ago. What has happened?

I see it’s not automatically forwarding to HTTPS. I suggest you use Cloudflare’s TLS/SSL page for Edge Certificates and enable “Always Use HTTPS” and “Automatic HTTPS Rewrites”. That might fix it.

Did that. For some reason “Always Use HTTPS” was not enabled. Did that. Still can’t load on iPhone or iPad. iMac is fine I think - will clear cashes and see what happens.

No, iMac still can download the site, but not iPhone or iPad.

There is a mension of a certificate I could generate and place on the server, but I have no idea where (at my ISP) I can place it. I have 4 folders: cgi-bin, logs, private and public.
The rest is populated by the web app I use to create the site (its files are in public).

I have now narrowed the problem down.
If I use 4G on the iPhone/iPad the site is fine, but if I use wifi it is not.
That does not look like a Cloudflare problem to me. I just wonder why?
Probably a problem with the router…

Sorry for troubling you.

Back again.

I can get to other secure sites on the net via wifi on my iPhone, but not to our site. So wifi is working - just not securely on our site via wifi.

I don’t get it.

Hi @styrelsen,

Shows the redirect you have now configured to https and the 200 found after the redirect.

The site also loads OK for me.

I suspect the issue on your end may be due to a cached value on the device/network. It should clear with time.
