In order for this technology to work effectively, the network's filtering unit must issue to your computer or mobile device a file called an SSL certificate.

This guide will help you install the SSL filtering certificate for Android-based mobile devices, including the Nexus, Galaxy, Droid, and Evo, as well as several other phones and tablets.

Step 3

Depending on your device and its configuration, you may be prompted to enter your device PIN. If you don't have a PIN set, you may be prompted to create one.


Step 4

Android certificate installation confirmation


You will see a confirmation that the certificate has been installed.


Step 5

You're done! You may continue browsing as usual; in most cases, you will not notice anything different after the certificate is installed.
