The PAWS-Secure wireless network’s primary encryption mechanism for user connections will get a new security certificate on Friday, Sept. 13, at 10 p.m.
The new security certificate may help resolve some recent issues with PAWS-Secure reported by users. PAWS-Secure is the preferred wireless network for all UGA students, faculty and staff and is available to anyone with a UGA MyID.
Depending on your device, you may need to reconfigure your phone, tablet, laptop or computer in order to access PAWS-Secure after the change. You may be asked to accept a new security certificate for a server or your previously-configured PAWS-Secure profile may not connect automatically. It is possible, depending on your device(s), that you may not receive a message on your device stating that it requires reconfiguration in order to connect to the PAWS-Secure wireless network.
There are two ways to configure your device for PAWS-Secure:
It is possible that the change may not require any action by you, depending on your device(s).
