Scheduled UMD GlobalProtect VPN Change March 2

At 7 a.m. on Thursday, March 2, 2023, Division of IT staff will make a change to the University of Maryland’s GlobalProtect Virtual Private Networking (VPN) service so that UMD community members will use their device’s default web browser to log in instead of GlobalProtect’s embedded browser. 

The first time you log into GlobalProtect after the change, you may notice a pop-up window asking for permissions and giving you the option to check a box to always allow the browser to open GlobalProtect. We recommend you do so for convenience. See the GlobalProtect VPN Login Change support article for details.

This change will streamline the overall UMD GlobalProtect login for the UMD community. Otherwise, your GlobalProtect service should remain the same.

If you have any questions or need assistance, please contact the IT Service Desk.
