Google Chrome and Cybersecurity

Recently, Google announced that Chrome will begin blocking mixed content downloads to increase security. This is happening incrementally over several releases.  It might limit your learner's ability access to non-HTTPS downloads or images even if they are started from secure pages within BlueVolt. Because some customers incorporate links and images from outside of the BlueVolt platform into their courses and University User Interface, we'd like to make sure you know this. 

 

Images

If a learner is on a secure course page and your course includes images, text, or video hosted on a non-secure URL (HTTP), then that content will show up as a broken image.

 

Downloads

Similarly, if there is a download link in the course and the referenced content is hosted on and insecure HTTP or FTP site, then clicking on the link will generate and error.

 

It's always safest to reference only secure sites. BlueVolt is just that. But, if you link outside the platform and can't use a secure protocol, you may soon see behaviors that you don't expect.
