The CipaFilter certificate needs to be manually installed on SmartPhones that will use the MWISD wifi.

 Note: MWISD iPads have this installed automatically.  

You need to be on MWISD WIFI (guest) to be able to do the below steps.

 Note:  If your Iphone will not stay on the Guest wifi, upgrade it to the latest version by running the settings app (gears icon), click 'general', click 'software update', and check for updates and install the latest version.  This is an Apple bug with certain versions of the Apple IOS operating system.

        5. You will see a confirmation that the profile has been installed, and that the certificate is now Trusted. Tap the Done button in the top-right corner.

        6.  On your Iphone, run the 'settings' app (the gears icon).

IMPORTANT: On a Smart Phone, if not prompted to authenticate, open a web browser and you will automatically be asked to authenticate to the web filter.   This authentication will last for 1 month before being required again. This must be done before using an app that goes to the internet.
