2 Certificate install - Apple IPhone & IPad

Apple Logo These instructions are for Apple iPhones & iPads. There are separate certificate installation instructions for Apple Macs, Android 9&10, Android 11, Chromebooks and Windows devices.

On your Apple iPhone or iPad, you may get certificate error messages when going to secure websites, or the sites might not load at all. Secure websites have addresses that begin with "https" and they show a padlock icon in Safari's address bar once they've loaded. To load these sites without the error messages you need to install N4L's security certificate onto your device.

1. Ensure you are connected to Kerikeri High School's 'KKHS_Mahi' wifi, and have access to the school website at www.kerikerihigh.ac.nz. Instructions on how to do this are available here.

2. Open Safari and go to www.kerikerihigh.ac.nz by typing it all in to the address bar.

3. From the School website's 'Devices' menu select 'Download N4LCert.crt'. A message about downloading a configuration profile will appear. Select 'Allow'. A confirmation message will appear once the profile has downloaded.

4. Go into 'Settings', 'General', 'Profile'. There will be a 'Network for Learning (N4L) Root CA' profile listed there.
(Note: The 'Profile' menu option will only appear if you've successfully downloaded the certificate into a new profile).

5. Select 'Network for Learning (N4L) Root CA' then select 'Install' in the top-right. Enter your device's passcode when prompted.

6. Messages about the certificate will appear. Select 'Install' twice more to complete the install.

7. Go into 'Settings', 'General', 'About', 'Certificate Trust Settings', and move the slider next to 'Network for Learning (N4L) Root CA' to 'On'.
Select 'Continue' on the warning message.

8. Re-open your web browser. Try going to a secure website, e.g. https://www.google.com
You should no longer get certificate security warnings.

These instructions were written using IOS v14.4.1. The installation details may differ on other versions but the concepts are the same.
For help with setting up your device, especially the certificate install, see the IT Ninjas in the SMI Computer Room at lunchtime on Mondays and Fridays.
