Microsoft security professionals recently advised that Internet Explorer is no longer suitable for web browsing.  They recommend IE 11 only be used for internal tools, such as legacy apps that are not updatable. 

With this announcement and the security concerns regarding Internet Explorer 11,  Bank of the Pacific will no longer support IE11 for access to the online banking platform. 

What does this mean for our customers that are currently utilizing Internet Explorer for their browsers?Woman_Lap_Top

In order to provide our account holders with a secure experience, we’re following Microsoft’s recommendations and moving forward with plans to end support for IE11. Of course, our account holders will be able to use IE11 for browsing other sites and using other applications, but to access online banking they’ll need to use a modern, supported browser—such as Chrome, Firefox, Safari or Microsoft’s Edge Browser.

Update your browser and you'll have a more secure online banking experience, as well as peace of mind knowing you are doing your part to keep your financial information safe. As online fraud continues to evolve, browsers have to become more secure with each release to help ensure your safety. No matter what browser you use, make sure you have the latest version installed. It is also very important to ensure your Operating System is up-to-date. Make sure the operating system you are using is currently supported. If it is not a supported operating system, we recommend you purchase and install a new, supported one.

Stay Secure
