One Fiddler to Rule Them All

The second release of Fiddler Everywhere is now live, and we've added the most critical and highest requested features.

November is shaping up to be a strong month for Fiddler Everywhere. Just over two weeks after the initial release, we’re releasing a new group of the most requested features. Check what’s new:

  • HTTPS decryption – allows you to capture HTTPS traffic
  • Content decoding – allows you to read encoded requests and responses
  • Allow remote connections – allows you to capture traffic from another machine/device
  • Fiddler Everywhere Documentation – read more about how to use and configure Fiddler in our new docs
  • Fixes – we fixed some of the issues reported by you

HTTPS Decryption

Fiddler now supports HTTPS decryption. Let’s be honest – today most traffic is encrypted. In fact, we had trouble finding non-encrypted websites to test Fiddler with. That’s why this feature had the highest priority in our backlog, and is the most voted in our feedback portal, too. You can find out how to enable HTTPS decryption in this help article.

Content Decoding

You can now see the content of encoded requests and responses. Just click on the Decode button and Fiddler will automatically decode the sessions.

Remote Connections

Now you can capture traffic from another machine/device. To enable this feature, go to Settings / Connections and check the box next to Allow remote computers to connect.

Fiddler Everywhere Documentation

Fiddler version 0.2 brings you our brand new documentation website. There you can read more about how to use the tool. Check it out, and don’t forget to leave a thumbs up if you find it helpful.

Fixes

There was an issue where Fiddler wasn't working on Ubuntu 18.10, which we have addressed.

Conclusion

Since we first released Fiddler Everywhere, we’ve been working hard to deliver the things you need most. Now, the second release is here, with the most important and requested features. We’re trying to set the pace high, so stay tuned for new goodies in the upcoming weeks. In the meantime, don’t forget to vote or share your ideas in our feedback portal.
