Q. I'm getting a security warning when I try to access a library page

When I click on something in the library's webpage or in a research database, I getting a warning message that says "Your connection is not private/secure." What is that?


Answer

Depending on many security settings, you may come across a "security warning" message when trying to access articles or webpages through the MUW library. We assure you, there is nothing to worry about! There are no risks trying to access information! 

There are simple work-arounds to this. If you're using the Chrome browser, click "Advanced," and then "Proceed to..." (see screenshots):

 

 

If you're using the Firefox browser, click on "Advanced," "Add Exception," and "Confirm."
