SafeConnect Registration and Installation for Macs

ResidentialWiFi

SafeConnect for Macintosh users requires a client or "Policy Key" to be installed. The first time you connect wired or wirelessly to UNCP's Residential network (ResidentialWiFi) and access a page outside of the UNCP network, you will be redirected to the authentication page displayed below.

Login with your network (BraveWeb) username and password. Check "I accept the acceptable use policy" and submit.

You will be prompted to download the SafeConnectMacInstaller.zip file. Select "Save File". Take note of the location in which the application is saved. By default it should go into the "Download" folder in your home directory.

Once you select Install it will prompt you for account credentials. It is not necessarily the credentials for your UNCP account. This is an account local to your computer. It may be the username and password you must use to log in when it first boots up, or when it comes back from a screen saver.
