Recent developments in internet security mean we need to ask our website visitors to take some precautionary actions. These developments relate to vulnerabilities that protect the communication between our website and your browsers and the information exchanged between them.
From January 2016 Microsoft removed support (including security updates) for some of their older browsers. This doesn't mean that your browsers or computers don't work but simply that Microsoft will not release any fix for any future flaws in old versions of Internet Explorer.
In our promise to protect your data, we will apply some changes to our web servers later in 2016. As a result of these changes our web servers will no longer accept communication with browsers containing known security flaws. These changes will also improve your internet experience.
What do you need to do?
New or latest versions of browser are not affected so most users won't need to do anything. However we strongly advise that you check your browser version and if required, update your browser.
We recommend using the latest version available, but as a minimum update to a version that is supported.
The minimum supported browser versions are:
- Chrome 47 or higher
- Firefox 38.5 or higher
- Internet Explorer 10 or higher
- Safari 9 or higher
How to update your browser?
It's usually easy to update your browser by visiting the website of your browser provider and downloading from there. You should find instructions on how to do it on the same website. Some browsers allow you to update from the browser menu.
