Do I lose my data if switching from http to https in GA?

Hi, 

We've recently switched from http to https, so I also wanted to switch to https in GA. I am just concerned about missing all of my data from http and have to start all over with the https. Do you have an answer for this? 

 

Regards, 

Andreas

Hi :-)
You wont lose any data already in GA unless you delete the View(s), Property or Account.

On the Property Settings page and for each View, where it asks for the website url, click on where it says http and select https instead and then save the changes.
And then you may want to add an annotation in GA with what date the interface was changed to https

More info on annotations and their usefulness can be found here:
