I'm building an application on top of StackExchange's API for a month now. While I was building the OAuth flow to allow users to authenticate using their StackExchange account, everything was working fine. Since a couple of days, though, the flow stopped working properly, and every time I try to connect I get an Application Login Failure:

error: invalid_request
error description: OAuth request must be over HTTPS

I'm using https://github.com/acruxray/passport-stack-exchange/ to handle the OAuth flow.

I'm I missing something or is this an error on the API itself?

How could it be working before but not anymore?
