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.
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 you 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.
Further information about the update can be found here.
Updating the University Websites
In the coming weeks Information Services will be changing all University websites, including Moodle, the staff intranet and myNapier, so that they are served by https.
Further information about these changes will be available in due course, in the meantime if you have any queries please contact the IS Service Desk in the first instance.
