Cape Cod 5 recommends the use of a modern browser to support the security measures in place to keep your data safe and to ensure the best possible online banking experience.

Specifically, all versions of Internet Explorer (IE) no longer receive feature updates and do not support up-to-date web application security, making you potentially vulnerable when using IE.

Reasons to update your web browser

  • Security Considerations – A compromised web browser could make your personal information public and older web browsers are more susceptible to becoming compromised. Vulnerable browsers could permit or facilitate the installation of spyware that can capture passwords, credit card numbers and screenshots to pass along to hackers.
  • Website Compatibility – New website technologies are often only supported by newer browsers. As businesses update their websites, older browsers may not function properly or be able to display parts of a website.
  • Faster & More Responsive Browsing Experience – Every web page you visit loads elements such as images, scripts and other resources that help improve the look and functionality of the site. Old browsers do not perform these tasks with the same speed as new browsers. This makes your experience considerably slower, and can sometimes cause your browser to crash or freeze.
