What is HTTPS+ Checker?

HTTPS+ Checker is a Firefox add-on that allows you to quickly check if a website has HSTS, HPKP, DANE / TLSA, and DNSSEC security mechanisms in place. It verifies these complementary security measures without validating if your session uses them.

The extensions quickly check if the website has HSTS, HPKP, DANE / TLSA and DNSSEC (but do not validate if your session uses them).

User reviews
Sometimes it works, sometimes it does not for the same URL. Not stable at all. Plugin seems to work ok for getting the results, it is the site that sends the results that has the problems and needs to be updated.

To Aelisya and bigon, if you have Extension source viewer you can see (Firefox user 13857193)s code. This isn't spyware and does connects to securely... CODE: if (url.protocol === "http:" || url.protocol === "https:") { console.log("onGot : " + API) var host = url.hostname;'GET', API + host, false); xhr.send(); The addon does what it says and is safe!

Be aware that this module contacts an external non-https server to do the validation, this is a big no-no for me as this will lead to information being leaked.
