The first question that people ask when you suggest updating their browser is “Why?”. The answer, very simply put, because you’re compromising your security.

Older browsers may not support today’s denser encryption levels. Internet Explorer, which has been discontinued by Microsoft and not supported since January 2016, only allows encryption levels up to 64-bit. Most financial institutions use a higher encryption level of 256-bit. If you are able to log in, which is not always the case, your information is not secured to the highest level possible.

Upgrading will also save you a significant amount of frustration. Internet protocols are constantly evolving. Most websites are now built on a responsive frame. This means that it will adjust accordingly depending on the browser being used – be it desktop, tablet, or smartphone.

Outdated browsers are also more vulnerable to malware and viruses.
