I'm trying to have the SSL certificates at this university fixed, however I think this feature really is necessary for the survival of the product (e.g. it's present in similar apps).
Yes but once you enter your university URL once in the settings this error is gone forever. I wanted the user to have to take action to make sure this works rather than just a simple prompt because many people do not understand the serious implications of going to a SSL site with an invalid cert. This way they would have to know what they are doing and take action by entering the URL to get around a bad SSL cert.
