Don’t Get Blocked by SafeConnect

Published: January 7th, 2016

Category: Featured Content, News

On Wednesday, June 28th at 7:00am, we will move SafeConnect from warnings into blocking.  This means that if you are not compliant with any of the SafeConnect Policies, you will be blocked from accessing the Internet.  One of the main reasons residents get blocked is due to outdated Adobe Flash plugins.  In many cases, Adobe Flash can be completely removed from the system as both Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge include a version of Flash that gets updated constantly.  If you have Adobe Flash installed and do not need it to browse the web, please uninstall it completely from your computer.

NOTE: On some Windows computers, the Adobe Flash ActiveX plugin does not completely remove.  We have created the Adobe Flash ActiveX Removal Tool to use after you have uninstalled Adobe Flash through Control Panel.  This will ensure that you have completely removed Adobe Flash from your computer.  Once downloaded, you will need to find the file, right-click, and choose Run As Administrator in order for it to work.

If you have any questions or need assistance, please visit the IT Assistance for Residents Help Desks located on the ground floor of Beaty East.  Once enforcement starts, expect long wait times.  Stop by before June 28th to ensure you can get in quickly.

What is this view?

You are using a dynamic assistive view of the University of Florida site. It has all the same data and features of the original site but formatted just with assistive users in mind. It has links and content reorganized to aid assistive users and has controls at the bottom under assistive options that allow you to control key aspects such as font size and contrast colors etc.
This is not a separate text-only site, it's a dynamic view that uses unique technology from Usablenet to give assistive users better, more accessible access to the same content and features as all users that use the graphic view of the site.
