Did you know, the operating system and web browser you use can affect your online banking experience? Both should be updated frequently and are two reasons why:
1) Security. The latest browsers have the best security features and support more advanced security protocols which can better protect you from vulnerabilities and viruses, even if you are using an anti-virus program.
2) Functionality. Web sites are designed and built to work with a variety of operating systems and web browsers, but you’ll have the best experience if you update your browser to the most current version.
The following has more information about browser and operating systems:
Internet Explorer 11 is the last version of Internet Explorer, and will continue to receive security updates, compatibility fixes, and technical support on Windows 7, Windows 8.1, and Windows 10. In other words, if you’re using any prior version of I.E., you’re at risk and it’s time to update. You can download the latest version of Internet Explorer.
Chrome automatically updates each time a newer version available. However, Google does not support for Chrome on some older operating systems:
Windows Vista, Windows XP, OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard, OS X 10.7 Lion and OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion

Windows XP SP2, Windows Server 2003 SP1, Windows Vista, Windows 7-10, Mac OS X 10.6-10.11. You can learn more about getting the latest version of Firefox on an older version of Windows.
The Safari browser doesn’t update automatically, however, users can easily check for updates by opening the App Store and clicking on ‘Updates’ in the toolbar. If there’s a new version of Safari available, users just need to click the ‘Update’ button (and enter their Apple ID), and the latest version will be installed.
