Yes, the Screencast team has been working on bringing HTTPS to Screencast.com. Today, we are in the early phases of rolling it out and testing it out on a larger scale.
This should bring an added level of security between Screencast.com and your browser. For example, it can help prevent injected ads from some ISPs and attacks from malicious entities.

HTTPS is also requirement for many new browser features. So it was definitely something we wanted to bring to our customers. :)

Today, you can host https content in two different ways with Screencast.com:
  1. You can manually go to the site (or follow this link: https://www.screencast.com) and change "http" to "https" in your browser address bar. Everything from then on will be https (including share and embed links are https) for the duration of your visit. And your viewers can use those links at any time.
  2. You can manually change "http" to "https" in any share links and they should also work.

We will make this the default experience in a future update.

The TechSmith website has been using https for a while now for the same reason.

As far as the Snagit and Camtasia, we are evaluating what would need to be using https. If you have suggestions for what you’d want to be more secure. Let us know here or open a support ticket. https://support.techsmith.com/hc/en-us
