BlueJeans App Required After September 10, 2016

Message from BlueJeans:

To ensure a consistent, reliable, and first-class Primetime experience, event moderators and presenters will be required to join through the BlueJeans App after 9/10. Attendees can still join through preferred browser options.

Over time, browser plugins have proven to be more insecure than browsers themselves.  Consequently, browsers such as Firefox, Internet Explorer, and Chrome are phasing out plugins.  Instead, features historically offered through plugins are now being introduced in the form of built-in browser features.

With that being said, BlueJeans will stop development for their plugin on September 10, 2016.  BlueJeans now recommends using their BlueJeans App instead.  The BlueJeans App works on the following operating systems:

  • Windows 10, 8, 7, and Vista
  • Mac OS X 10.7 and above
  • Linux - RHEL 7 and above and Fedora 22 (not available until 09/10/2016)

For a full list of BlueJeans App downloads, please visit the BlueJeans Download Our App webpage.  Once you have the BlueJeans App installed, please select the 'SIGN INTO MY ACCOUNT' option.  This should forward you to the MIS Portal webpage where you would use your JLab username and password to start the BlueJeans App.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding this change, please contact the IT Division Help Desk.
