MATLAB Online is a web-based version of MATLAB that can run within select supported web browsers.
This product is designed for students to be able to access MATLAB from any computer with an active Internet connection, and allows collaboration, online sharing, publishing as well as cloud storage through MATLAB Drive.
For more information about MATLAB Online, please consult the following product web page:
This product is currently only available on select types of licenses, and is not a part of MATLAB Mobile. MATLAB Mobile's cloud component is named the MathWorks Cloud.

Thank you Walter - I must have misstyped it when entering the comment above. But it still happens that pressing the "MATLAB Online" buttons on the page (leading to trigger "Insecure Site" errors in Firefox and Edge browsers, with no way to press forward.
My system is overburdened with software, so the option of an "Online" operation is most preferable. Thanks again.

That's not the behavior I'm seeing. I recommend contacting your IT staff to determine if this is related to some security software and/or policies they've deployed on your machine and/or your network. If not, you and your IT staff should probably contact Technical Support using the telephone icon in the upper-right corner of this page and work with Support to determine why the browsers on your machine are flagging MATLAB Online as insecure and how to correct the problem.
Thank you Steven - You were right - and now I'm confused. This morning, after I posted the last comment, it went from Firefox/Edge complaint to full-site-application block - I know that is our network security (PAN) appliance. I then relayed to our security team the issue, they fixed it, and now I can access MATLAB Online. Had I gotten the full-app-block page immediately, I would not have complained here. Why Firefox and Edge were making "Untrusted Connection" complaints is beyond me now... But I'm happy I got this done, in any case. Cheers!
