Advisor Xpress Browser Guide

A Web browser is a software program that enables you to access and display information from the World Wide Web quickly and easily. Our website is best viewed using a browser that supports the capabilities of Netscape Navigator® version 3.0 or higher, and Microsoft® Internet Explorer version 4.0 or higher.

To access account information, initiate online account transactions, or send secure messages, your browser must support:

  • 128-bit encryption (also called domestic-, U.S.-grade, or strong encryption), which encodes information so that it cannot be read without decoding.
  • Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) version 2.0 protocol, which ensures that communication between your computer and our Web server can't be interrupted or intercepted by an unauthorized user.

If your browser does not meet Advisor Xpress security requirements, use one of the following links to download an upgraded browser:

Tips for Downloading and Installing a Browser

  • Follow the downloading instructions provided on the web browser manufacturer's website. If you have technical problems, call the browser manufacturer for support.
  • Provide all information requested on the eligibility form that you will be required to complete online for 128-bit encryption. You must be a citizen or permanent resident of the United States or Canada to download a browser with 128-bit encryption.
  • Once you have completed the download, follow the manufacturer's instructions to install the browser properly on your computer.
