Wireless Certificate Change
What's a Wi-Fi certificate?
Wi-Fi certificates provide secure network access by identifying and encrypting your login credentials. They are like a digital passport to confirm that your device is connecting to an actual campus network and not an impostor.
Accepting the new certificate
The new certificate will not affect any network functionality you currently have, but depending on your device and settings, you may need to do the following:
- If you get a popup warning about the new certificate, confirm that it's the correct certificate (see examples below), and if correct, click "Accept" or "Connect". NOTE: Typically, warnings like this indicate that something isn't right and you shouldn't continue logging in. In this case, it's safe to click "Accept" or "Connect".
- If your device has been set to ignore certificates, it will automatically connect to the network and accept the new certificate.
What does the new certificate popup look like?
Depending on your device or operating system, the new certificate popup may look like the following examples:
- If you cannot connect at all, you may need to remove your existing wireless network settings and reconnect. Another option is to use the SecureW2 connection assistance tool. This will automatically connect you to the updated Wi-Fi network and certificate.
