Enable HTTPS interception with foreign SSL certificates

<10kB. Updated 2018-03-01. Only supports Anki 2.1.x.


If you want to connect to AnkiWeb while working from a Network which serves their own SSL certificates which are not trusted by Anki libary you can install this addon. Be aware, that the network administrator can access your encrypted data and therefore the connection is potentially unsafe, so dont install it unless you trust the network provider.


As add-ons are programs downloaded from the internet, they are potentially malicious. You should only download add-ons you trust.

To download this add-on, please copy and paste the following code into Anki 2.1:


If you were linked to this page from the internet, please open Anki on your computer, go to the Tools menu and then Add-ons>Browse & Install to paste in the code.

Was getting this message when I tried to sync Anki:
"oserror: could not find a suitable tls ca certificate bundle"

This has fixed it, thank you.

Works great! For posterity: create a folder (perhaps "disable_ssl") under %APPDATA%\Anki2\addons21. AKA it it should be %APPDATA%\Anki2\addons21\disable_ssl\__init__.py.

I still can't connect to ankiweb, even after installing this add-on. My proxies are set correctly, and I can acess ankiweb using old versions of Anki, but not the newer versions. I don't even see any meaningful messages in strace, even with strace -f. I just see a bunch of "futex resumed ..... ETIMEDOUT. This is on Ubuntu 16.04, so I wonder if anki knows where to find the CA certs?

Very slick! Works perfectly. Big thanks to the below review for posting the tip on direct download and manual install. Follow those steps, then exit and reopen Anki and your cert headaches will be over.

Works like a charm!
True, it would be helpful if a direct download link was posted, since if I need this extension, I obviously cannot download it through Anki itself.

Well, here is a manual download link: https://ankiweb.net/shared/download/878367706?v=2.1
Create a new folder in %APPDATA%\Anki2\addons21 and paste the "__init__.py" there, restart Anki and hope it works like it did for me :)
