Q:

What's TLS 1.2?

A:

TLS stands for Transport Layer Security. It’s a security standard used to encrypt data and create a secure online connection.

When you log in to Bankline, a secure connection is established between our server and your browser to prevent theft of data or tampering. TLS is used to create that connection and safeguard your data.

TLS 1.2 is one of the most recent versions of the standard and it offers robust protection. Earlier versions are known to have vulnerabilities which make them easier targets for hackers.

We’re committed to protecting our customers and their data to the highest standards. For this reason, we’ve updated Bankline to TLS 1.2, and later in 2018 we’ll be phasing out compatibility with browsers that only support earlier versions of TLS.

To avoid compatibility issues and benefit from the protection TLS 1.2 offers, you'll need to make sure you’re using one of the following browser versions:

  • Internet Explore 11 or later.
  • Chrome 56 or later.
  • Firefox 52 or later.
  • Edge 14 or later.
  • Safari 10 or later.

The above browsers all have TLS 1.2 enabled automatically, but if you’re staying with Internet Explorer 10, you’ll need to manually enable it. For a guide to doing this, please see below.
