In your react web app, if you need HTTPS support while running on your localhost, just add this in your start script in your package.json file.

  "start": "HTTPS=true react-scripts start"

Then just run npm start.

You'll see something like this:
Not secured

But that's acceptable, till your site is getting served over HTTPS.

No need to take efforts of creating an SSL certificate!
