How to install the Securly certificate for Chromebooks?

Follow

You should install the Securly SSL certificate to ensure the best browsing experience and prevent errors on sites that Securly decrypts. The certificate does not control the level of filtering or what sites are allowed. Without the certificate, sites like Google.com and Facebook.com will show privacy errors, users will perceive this as the internet is “broken”.    

To install the Securly certificate:

  1. Download the SSL certificate named ‘securly_ca_2020.pem’ and 'securly_ca_2034.pem'  attached at the end of this article.
    • Later this Fall, Securly's current SSL Certificate will expire. We have provisioned a brand new SSL Certificate available below which expires in 2034. While to get up and running today you only need to have the original SSL Certificate Installed, we recommend that you install both SSL Certificates at the same time to ensure when the original expires, you are at no loss of service.
