I’m accessing University websites via Chrome, why am I getting a “not secure” message?

Aimed at:  Edinburgh Napier’s staff & students

The latest version of Google Chrome (version 62) requires that websites containing data input fields (including search functionality) should be served securely.  This means that any page that allow users to enter data that is served via http (rather than https) will receive a warning that the page is not secure.

Information Services are working to change all University websites to be delivered by https however there will be a transition period as this work is carried out.  In the meantime users may notice when inputting data that web pages served over http will display a "not secure" message in the browser bar.  Additionally any http page viewed in "Incognito" mode will be flagged as not secure.

You should not be concerned if you receive this message, the websites can still be accessed in the same way as they could before the upgrade. 

Further information about the upgrade and the work that Information Services are carrying out to reduce the impact can be found on the Staff Intranet.
