I’ve lived in the Randle area for the past 20 years, moving here from Kent in 1999 to get out of the city life and never looked back. I have three children, my oldest daughter lives in Seattle and the younger daughter and son live in Randle. I’m blessed with three beautiful grandkids.
Updated Browser Required!
I’ve had a few calls this week from clients who say their online banking web sites are requiring them to update their browsers to continue using their banking services. Microsoft has been installing Microsoft Edge on your computers over the last few months with automatic Windows Updates. This Browser is replacing the outdated and now unsupported Internet Explorer.
Edge--as well as the newer versions of Chrome and Firefox--have more security built into it, which as you know, is important with financial transactions done over the internet.
To make sure you can continue connecting to your bank, you can update your browser or start using a different one that will provide the security needed. If you are using Internet Explorer currently, you can start using Microsoft Edge which should already be on your computer.
To check to see if you are running the latest version, click on the three dots in the top right corner of the browser window and select Settings. Click on “About Microsoft Edge” at the lower left side of the screen. Edge will check to see if there is an update available and will update the browser for you.
If you are a Chrome user, the process is nearly identical. Click on the three dots in the top right corner of your browser window and select Settings. On the bottom left of the screen click on About Chrome. It will show what version you are running and if it needs updated and give you the option to do so.
Although making changes can be frustrating, your bank and other online financial outlets are doing what they can to keep your transactions secure.
Have a great week!
