If you click on a link to access an ebook, database, journal article or other electronic resources and get an error message that says “Your connection is not private,” try one of the following:

  1. Use Safari or Firefox browsers. Changing to these browsers may be the easiest solution
  2. Clear the history/cookies/cache in your browser
  3. Open an incognito window in your browser

If none of these suggestions work, please let us know through the libraries' Ask-Us service. If possible, please also let us know where on the USC Libraries resources you get this message.
