Examples of WebNow Security Warnings

Introduction

When you first access WebNow you are likely to encounter a blizzard of security warnings--well, a flurry at least. 

Though WebNow is Java-based, it is not a security threat to your computer because it is housed on a College server. You can safely ignore security warnings that normally you should take very seriously.

Below are some of the notifications and warnings you may receive when accessing WebNow, along with an explanation of how to handle them. In some cases, you may get the option to have your browser "remember" your choice. Doing so will prevent the same security warning from coming up in the future.
