The Technology Department has enabled SSL decryption on select websites across the district. This is necessary in order to allow the District’s content filter to detect when inappropriate terms are entered into search engines like Youtube and Pinterest.
If you use a personal device on the District’s network like a mobile phone or personal laptop, your personal device will need some attention.
Installing Certificate On Android Devices
1. Open the Settings app.
2. Underneath the User details for the device, tap Profile Downloaded.
The Install Profile screen will be displayed.
3. In the top right corner, tap Install.
4. If the iOS device has a passcode set, the device will prompt you to enter it. Enter the passcode.
5. A certificate warning will be displayed. Tap Install. If a second prompt is displayed, tap Install again
7. The Profile Installed screen is displayed. Tap Done
Trusting the Certificate
Before the certificate can be used as intended, it must be trusted by the device.
1. On the device, go to Settings > General > About > Certificate Trust Settings (at the bottom of the page).
The installed Root Certificates will be displayed in a section entitled "Enable Full Trust for Root Certificates."
There is a slide button next to each certificate.
2. Tap the slide button next to the certificate you just installed.
A confirmation dialogue will be displayed.
3. Tap Continue.
If you choose not to do this, you will see an error message every time you browse to one of these sites warning you that your ‘connection is not private’. Installing the certificate keeps your connection private and only allows the content filter to detect inappropriate terms.
This will also apply to students and guests who use the District’s Wi-Fi on personal devices. They are encouraged to install the certificate as well.
