If you received the alert prompting you to update your browser, then it appears that you may be using an out of date web browser.
What is a web browser you may ask? Without a web browser you cannot view or interact with websites. How do you personally access websites like Google, Yahoo, MSN, Facebook, and YouTube? You might commonly use the program that opens when you click the big blue “e” icon on your desktop. Here’s what it looks like:
This “e” icon is not a shortcut to a generic “internet” or “Web” program. It is a shortcut to a Web browser made by Microsoft, called “Internet Explorer” (also referred to as “IE”). Internet Explorer is currently at version 11. But many people are still using IE9 and IE10.
You appear to currently be running an out of date and less secure version of Internet Explorer, and we recommend that you upgrade to a newer version or different browser. Rogue Credit Union recommends that you are running at least IE, and preferably the most current release when using online banking. To help you upgrade we have some options for you to consider.
Another option to consider is switching to another browser or adding an additional browser, as computers are permitted to have multiple browsers. These options are also each free, and are considered by some to be more stable and secure than Internet Explorer. Switching to one of these browsers is free and will generally only take a few minutes.
Google Chrome - Chrome is a major competitor to IE and Firefox.
Mozilla Firefox - Firefox has been the main competitor to Internet Explorer since the mid-2000′s.
Apple Safari - This is the same browser that’s commonly used on iPhones and iPads.
We hope that you take a few minutes to update your browser. If you have read the information above and still have reservations about upgrading to a newer browser version, feel free to contact us at 800.856.7328. As we continue to make improvements and upgrades to your eBranch experience at Rogue, these updates will become more important.
