    It says cannot connect securely to this page
    Because site uses outdated or unsafe TLS security settings.

    Tried to upload a photo from phone but not playing ball.

    The certificate on the webshite might be using a SHA-1 cypher which is depreciated on most browsers. It's not a problem with your pooter, it's a problem with the site.

    Is it a school site? Greenman might have some knowledge of the sort of out-of-date shit they might be using.

    Try using Chrome as a browser, it's less fussy about certificates than IE

    9 times out of 10 its due to older TLS settings being disabled in the browser. You can check this in the advanced options of the browser. TLS 1.0, 2.0, 3.0.
