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 the desktop program:


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.

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 :)

Can't download via code since I'm blocked by the corporate proxy. Please fix this chicken-and-egg problem. You need this add-on to use anki through a corporate proxy using https interception. But to obtain this add-on, you have to install it before you can obtain it!

Please put a direct download link or something so it can be installed manually.
