Airbrake supports SSL connections both for the errors sent by the notifier, and for general site use. In order to use SSL, your account must be on any of the paid plans.
Configuring the notifier to use SSL is as simple as setting the
secure option in the initializer:
AirbrakeNotifier.configure do |config| config.api_key = 'secret key' config.secure = true end
Remember: Do not set the secure option if your plan does not support SSL
That's all you have to do to ensure that your error information isn't being sent to Airbrake as cleartext.
