when I hit https://facebook.com/profile.php?id=101010101010 https://facebook.com/john.profile

can my ISP know what I am doing on facebook from my requests? "/profile.php?id=101010101010" "/john.profile"

or they can just know I browse [facebook.com] over HTTPS?

  • So if I'm reading this right, you want to know if a request made from the index.php file will travel over HTTP or HTTPS, given that you reached the index.php page from an HTTPS connection?

  • GET request is made from Client->Server asking for the "/home/index.php" over HTTPS

  • No, just when you have some GET-parameter in the request uri like index.php?path=...

  • so when I am asking for the "/home/index.php" over HTTPS (domain.com) I am just exposing an HTTPS request over domain.com or the filepath too "/home/index.php" ?

    Nothing is exposed here at least as the transport is encrypted using TLS.

No, your ISP can not see this.

This was already answered here: What information can my ISP see when I visit a website?

  • This is not correct, or is at least very misleading. GET parameters are encrypted.

  • You can still see them in logfiles even when you use HTTPS
