"Your connection is not private. Malicious individuals may be trying to steal your personal information from www.imperial.ac.uk (passwords, messages or credit card numbers, for example)"

But I went around the problem by entering the address directly in the address bar of the browser.

In reality how 'technical' a person are you? What browser are you using.

Since the introduction of the GDPR in UK we cant view any News site that hadn't

But I would not mess with the guys at imperial. They ar building a robot army.

The French really don't like the English do they.

could be your antivirus. that message means that the site is secure (https:) and the browser cannot verify the site's certificate. can be a lot of reasons, not necessarily dangerous, but better be safe than sorry, so check first. you should also see an error code telling you exactly what's wrong.

Yes it must be this, because yesterday when I entered the address directly in the address bar of Chrome, I removed the HTTPS and just used the WWW.

So I went to the site.

okay. just don't EVER input personal data on sites with http (without the s, "not secure"), as that means the connection is not encrypted. any jerk in the neighborhood sniffing your wifi could get your data in plain text.

I know well.

And I never use the Wifi.

I am a purist, I use the direct Ethernet cable, which in my eyes provides the best, the most efficient and the most reliable connection with the net.

Especially with a connection at 950 Mb / s (a little pretentious can not hurt).

;)

The website is the officical website of Imperial university so they are just as likely to check who is accessing their website.
There entry requirements for the Computer science degree is the same as Oxbridge.

But the main concern right know is that there arnt enough female at the university and everyone just spends all there time studying and not going to parties.as staed in the student room website. That site is hilarious.

yes, doesn't mean there's necessarily anything wrong. just the validation failed and that could be for several reasons, on the site or on the users computer or browser. the boilerplate part of that message is always the same, though.

perfect for basement nerds then! :D

however, the link you posted just points to the computing department home page, and i couldn't find those news.

that's for giving away your email address. who leaked it? go figure. if it includes your full name, that should narrow it down ... from gazillions to mere zillions, i guess.

that sort of spam is everywhere. just ignore it, but anyway i recommend you use at least 2 email accounts, one for serious stuff (and give it away very sparingly), the other for any other random crap. just for qol, that pest isn't going away.
