When I try to hook up to the wifi at my workplace, the choice I have for the workplace wifi has "security type unknown" underneath the name, and I cannot click on it to enter password. Any ideas?

I had the same problem, but I fixed it this way:

Settings > Wi-fi > + Add Wi-Fi network > Enter the network name in Network SSID, select the security type ( WPA/WPA2 PSK) and enter the password if it is not an open network, and then tap Connect.

I hope I I have helped.

Hi Isabella,
I am having the same issue, my work WiFi shows security type unknown and I cant connect to it now though it used to connect previously.
When I go to Settings -> WiFi , it shows the listof WiFis and signal strengths ( including my Work WiFi), but I cant find the option to Add WiFi network as you said.
