Problem: "Your Connection is not Private" (Outlook on the web)

This article applies to: Outlook on the Web

User Experience

When trying to reach Outlook on the web at, you instead get a big warning message from your browser that "Your connection is not private."

Fixing the Problem

Do not worry. You either typed or clicked on a link that tried to go to

but in order to work correctly, the beginning of that URL should be "http" instead of "https" and that's what caused the warning.

Just type the URL without that "s" or fix your bookmark.

If this happened to you as a result of clicking a link on a Cornell page, please use the comment area at the bottom of that page (not this page) to report the problem so we can fix it. Thanks.
