Google Chrome Update and University Websites
Information Services are aware that the latest version of Google Chrome (version 62) released from 17 October 2017 onwards, will impact some University websites.
The update introduces a change in settings which 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.
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. Read more...
