Safari Will No Longer Be A Supported Browser For Windows Users

Tuesday, August 13, 2013 - 9:01 AM
This affects online banking at a number of banks and credit unions:

Safari: Effective August 8, 2013, the current and prior major release of Safari will be supported for Apple/Mac users only.  Safari will no longer be a supported browser for Windows users.

This is a security based change to the policy as a result of Apple's decision to not allow Windows users to update beyond the 5.1.7 version of Safari.  At this time, Windows Safari users are exposed to at least 121 unpatched items.     

Please note that Windows Safari users will not be prevented from using Online Banking.  But it is highly recommended that Safari Windows users utilize an alternative browser. If you absolutely must use these older versions, you will need to use the following workaround:

After login, click the refresh button (on the browser toolbar) to re-load the screen. Note: This will need to be repeated with each login.
