Important Security Update Regarding your Browser
Ensuring the highest level of security when it comes to your online transactions and banking activity is our top priority. We’d like to let you know about a key change beginning June 15 and initiated by industry leaders (i.e. Google and Firefox). It may impact how you access both public websites and secure sites for online banking.
What is the change?
Browsers will be required to utilize Transport Layer Security (TLS) protocol 1.2 to access many online services. It’s the most widely deployed security protocol available, and is used for web browsers and other applications that require data to be securely exchanged over a network.
Older versions — TLS 1.0 and TLS 1.1 — will no longer be supported.
What this means for you
If you attempt to access online banking or our website with unsupported software, you won’t be able to see or access it.
Steps you need to take
You may need to upgrade your browser to support TLS 1.2. This change will not affect your usage in any other way. You can test your TLS “score” by heading to howsmyssl.com. If you see TLS 1.1 or lower under the Version section, you will need to upgrade your browser. If you see TLS 1.2 or higher under the Version section, no action is required.
Browsers that support the updated security:
- Microsoft Internet Explorer (IE): version 11 and higher
- Microsoft Edge: all versions
- Mozilla Firefox: version 27 and higher
- Google Chrome: version 38 and higher
- Apple Safari
- Desktop Safari: versions 7 and higher for OS X 10.9 (Mavericks) and higher (7)
- Mobile Safari: versions 5 and higher for iOS 5 and higher
