    Hi,  its great that I finally have Junos Pulse installed and have access but I'm a little concerned about my device after setting the 'Run In Unsafe Mode'.  How will this affect my machine?  is there a chance i may loose data if the app crashes, etc?

    Can you provide more clarity on the effects of using that setting, please.

     

    Thank you

    Hi James,

    The setting in Safari to change the 'permission' authorisation level of Java only has an effect when ntuanywhere.ntu.ac.uk attempts to

    leave its sandbox (to download and execute the installer), and so browsing other sites with this setting has no effect.

    Further to this, the setting in question is what allows the installation of JunosPulse application only.  Once you have installed JunosPulse you can change the setting in Safari to 'ask' rather than 'Allow' if you wish (but the next time there is an update to the application you will need to 'Allow' it again otherwise it will not update), but this is unnecessary as the Application JunosPulse doesn't use Safari's settings when connecting via the JunosPulse App.

    There is no risk to your data even if there is an app crash.

    Hope this clears up what the setting does and how it is used.
