If your device does not already have system certificates installed and you selected “Do not validate” you will see a warning message about security/privacy. It is safe to connect to our network; this is just a general message from the operating system.

“Do not validate” Warning

On Android devices with OS versions 11 and above, the “Do not validate” CA Certificate option has been removed as a menu option. “Trust on First Use” or “Use system certificates” must be used to successfully connect the mobile device to the FDU-Secure wireless network in this case. If the “Trust on First Use” CA Certificate option is selected, you will see a warning message requiring you to tap “Yes connect.”
