On 23rd September, 2019.

Vacancies are open on Army Public School website for AWS online screening Test 2019, applicants are asked to register and fill the application form online. The website they are using for accepting online applications is not secure and any SSL certificate is not installed on the website which is accepting candidate's information.

Though the army public schools are highly reputed among Indian Army and civilians, therefore such a negligence is not expected from school management. The website need to install a valid domain validated or green bar SSL certificate, so that the candidates information reach to server in encrypted format. Being a not safe website some browsers are not opening the page and showing only "Not Secure" warning and warn the candidate that this site is not safe for browsing.

It is controlled by the Army Welfare Education Society (AWES), which was established in 1983, has over the years established more than 135 Army public schools and 249 Army pre-primary schools across India, and also several institutions of higher education.

Being an unsafe website candidates are unable to apply for the advertisement. Being an responsible organisation AWS is expected to install a valid SSL certificate on the website for accepting the candidates information and making any financial transaction. Some browser are not displaying the site properly and  also stopping the form submission over insecure network.
