Final URL - start with http?

I want to change http to https in my Final URLs but can no longer see any reference to 'http' of any kind - all I'm seeing are the URLs beginning with www.

 

I was sure we used to be able to select it from a dropdown menu for each ad - but it's possible my memory is playing tricks on me and I'm confusing it with Analytics.

 

Do you start your Final URL with http/https?

 

Thanks.

You can edit the URL however you want (as long as it works), but the display URLs are now automatically generated for expanded text ads. http/https/www will all work, but the display URL will display as www. As long as the site is https, it doesn't really matter how you enter the final URL for the ads. Whatever security bonus you get for a https site will still apply.
