Transition from SHA-1 to SHA-2

The signature algorithm of manaba’s TLS/SSL certificate will be changed from SHA-1 to SHA-2. This migration is crucial to provide secure communication to our customers.

Due to this transition, OS, web browsers and mobile devices such as feature phones or smart phones that do not support SHA-2 certificate and considered insecure, will not be able to display manaba. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience this may cause.

The actual transition date and inoperable devices may vary depending on the organization. Please contact manaba support desk for more information.

Microsoft has released Windows 10 and its default web browser Microsoft Edge on July 29th, 2015. This page will inform you about the compatibility of manaba.

As a result of our system operation verification, we have confirmed the following problem:

It is also compatible with manaba folio, which haven’t had the “attendance / real-time survey option” available.

Students can now download the free respon iOS/Android app, so that active learning can be easily exercised even in a big class room. In addition, more accurate attendance count is possible by turning on GPS.
