Using Fiddler with HTTPS

By default Fiddler doesn't allow you to view and inspect the details of requests made via HTTPS.

This can be done if you enable "Decryption of HTTPS traffic"

Go to Tools >> Fiddler Options >> Select HTTPS tab >> Select "Decrypt HTTPS traffic" if it is not already selected.

When you select this option Fiddler will popup two warning message boxes, one after the other. First one will say something like "Fiddler generates a root CA certificate to intercept HTTPS traffic". Click "Yes" then it will popup another message box saying "You are about to install a certificate from CA...". Click "Yes" again.

That is it. You can start debugging HTTPS traffic now.
