I am using Google Chrome on Windows 7. I've installed HTTPS Everywhere extension and I want to add my own custom rule.

According to this document it should be stored in HTTPSEverywhereUserRules directory somewhere on my disk. Unfortunately I cannot find it.

Do you have any idea where to look?

  • In your OS, go to the folder where the HTTPS Everywhere extension was installed. On Windows, that's
    %LOCALAPPDATA%\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Extensions\gcbommkclmclpchllfjekcdonpmejbdp\VERSION
    (replace VERSION, of course).
  • Put the XML file(s) in the rules subfolder.
  • Edit rule_list.js and add the new file(s) to the list, like this (THEFILE.xml is the new ruleset):

    var rule_list = ["rules/default.rulesets","rules/THEFILE.xml"];

  • Restart Chrome.
