Wi-Fi update may prompt you to accept the new certificate

The University of Manitoba is issuing a new certificate for our uofm-secure wireless network on January 25 at 10:00 p.m. Following the update, some devices will automatically upgrade to the new certificate, while others will be unable to connect to the wireless network until you accept the new certificate. 

Action required

You may be prompted to accept a new certificate when connecting to uofm-secure after January 25. Please select the appropriate button to complete your connection:

  • iOS In the "Certificate" dialogue box, select Trust.
  • Android If prompted, do not validate the certificate. Just select Connect.
  • Windows OS In the "Connecting" dialogue box, select Connect.
  • macOS In the "Verify Certificate" dialogue box, select Continue.
  • ChromeOS Will automatically upgrade. No action required.

Example: Wi-Fi "Certificate" dialogue box in iOS.

Cant connect?

If your laptop or mobile device stopped connecting, remove the existing wireless network by telling your device to "forget" the uofm-secure network and add it again from the list of available networks. Sign in with your UM email address and password. Then accept the certificate when prompted.
