Known Issue: Users falsely receive ‘Unsafe Site’ warning in Chrome Browser

By September 3, 2020 Known Issues

Update: September 9, 2020 2:25pm

Google Chrome has identified and confirmed the mislabelling of Humber’s Panopto site within the Chrome Browser. The false alert will be removed from users’ browsers over the next few hours. In some cases, your browser may take 1-2 days to receive the update. If users are still seeing the false alert after Friday, Sept. 11, 2020, please contact Humber’s Panopto Support Team via e-mail.

Date: September 3, 2020

Active Issue: Users who are browsing Panopto directly, or watching an embedded Panopto video using the Google Chrome browser may sporadically receive a “The site you just tried to visit looks fake” error. Please note that this is a false alert, and we are actively working with Panopto to resolve the issue with Google.

Workaround: To proceed to your Panopto video, click the “Ignore” button. If you wish, you can confirm that you are in fact being taken to Humber’s authentic Panopto platform by verifiying that the URL begins with https://humber.ca.panopto.com/, and has a “forward-slash” at the end of .com.

Error that says: Did you mean humber.ca? The site you just tried to visit looks fake. Attackers sometimes mimic sites by making small, hard-to-see changes to the URL. [Ignore] [Go to humber.ca]

Workaround: To proceed to your Panopto video, click the “Ignore” button. If you wish, you can confirm that you are in fact being taken to Humber’s authentic Panopto platform by verifiying that the URL begins with https://humber.ca.panopto.com/, and has a “forward-slash” at the end of .com.
