Why do I need to make sure my browser is updated?
Having a current browser installed is a key and necessary component to keeping your online banking experience and financial information safe and secure. As online fraud continues to evolve, browsers have to become more secure with each release to help ensure your safety.
Updated browsers will have updated security protocols, which are used to ensure data integrity and privacy when communicating between two applications (i.e. financial websites, online checkouts, retail websites, etc.).
In order to maintain industry best practices and to ensure that your data continues to be highly secure, we will be updating our TLS Security Protocol.
What is TLS? TLS stands for "Transport Layer Security." It is a protocol that provides privacy and data integrity between two communicating applications. It's the most widely deployed security protocol used today, and is used for web browsers and other applications that require data to be securely exchanged over a network.
On May 1, 2018
, we will begin to disable the TLS 1.0 encryption protocol. This may cause connectivity issues to our online and mobile banking applications if your browser is out of date. A simple test can determine if you will need to update your browser.
