Checking Your Browsers for 128-bit Encryption
To ensure security of your financial information, Peoples Net Banking requires that your computer's internet browser program (usually Microsoft Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator) is capable of 128-bit encryption.
To check the encryption level of your browser, please do the following:
Open Internet Explorer
Using the menu items at the top, click on HELP and then
ABOUT INTERNET EXPLORER
You will see an item labeled CIPHER STRENGTH
The information following this item should read "128-bit", if not you
will need to update your browser. Please refer to the section labeled Download Tips below.
Netscape Communicator 4.7x or greater or Navigator 4.x or greater
In Navigator or Communicator, go to the Help menu and select About Navigator (or Communicator).
Look for the section that reads "Contains encryption software from RSA Data Security, Inc".
If the next paragraph says "This version supports U.S. security", that means you have 128-bit security. If it says you have International security, that means you have 40-bit security.
Upgrading your browser is fairly easy, however, it can take several hours to download the upgrade, depending on the speed of your internet access. We can offer a few download tips, however, we take no responsibility and assume no liability for the process of upgrading your Internet browser.
Before you begin the download, print the instructions first.
Download at night when less people are on the internet and download should be faster.
Selecting 'Run This Program From It's Current Location' in the File Download window will run the browser upgrade over the internet and automatically upgrade your browser for you. This will take longer than the 'Save This Program to Disk' option.
Selecting 'Save This Program to Disk' will download the browser upgrade file to your PC in a folder that you must choose. You will then need to follow the directions that you printed to continue the upgrade process after the file is downloaded.
If you choose 'Save This Program to Disk', you can select the 'Close This Dialog Box When Download Completes' to close that window and automatically disconnect from the internet.
