Dear facebook/instagram

When in sandbox mode, please dont require https redirects, my localhost server has no concept of what an SSL cert is, its sandbox for a reason.

    I usually run an nginx conainer in front of whatever i'm developing with self-signed certificates, perhaps an idea?

    @alexbrooklyn you beat me to it.

    Just because it's a "sandbox" doesn't mean it shouldn't work correctly.

    @C0D4 And it if works without https in development there is a chance everything in production crashes, hence why using https locally is recommended since it's closer to the production version

    @alexbrooklyn I have no idea how to start doing that

    I'd find it dangerous to run something without encrypted connection regardless of the context when it's about an external resource 😅
