about Internet browsers not list on the supported list?
browser that is not in the Internet Banking Supported Browser

will not work with Internet Banking, just that it is not
specifically tested to ensure that it does fully function with
an AOL user and having some problems, what do I need to do to to
use Internet Banking?
a customer uses AOL and experiences any problems with Internet
Banking, it is recommended that the customer connect to the
Internet using their AOL Browser, but then minimize the AOL
Browser and launch an external browser such as Microsoft
Internet Explorer (IE) or another support browser to access
Internet Banking. Even though AOL uses Microsoft’s Internet
Explorer (IE) as part of their software, there have been
modifications performed to AOL’s browser and because of these
modifications, it may not be compatible or work properly with
our Internet Banking site.
Q. Do I need to turn on or
turn off Pop-up Blockers?
Pop-Up Blockers built-in to any browser that appears on the
Internet Banking Supported Browser Software list above are
allowed, Pop-up Blockers installed as a plug-in, such as
“Google” or “Yahoo” toolbar pop-up blockers, may cause
problems. It is recommended that these plug-in pop-up blockers
be turned off or pop-ups should be allowed when using these
toolbars for our Internet Banking site.
Q. Is there any known
problems using Anti-Virus, Anti-Spam or Anti-Spyware software
with your Internet Banking System?
Anti-Virus, Anti-Spam or
Anti-Spyware software should not cause any problems with our
Internet Banking System. Please be aware though that because of
the vast amount of virus, spam and spyware software solutions
and configurations available for any one PC, all software and
all configurations just could not be tested. Our
recommendation is that if you encounter a problem with Internet
Banking and you feel it is one of these software solutions
causing the problem, contact the software developer and explain
your situation. They should be able to determine if their
software is the issue. If you fail to get results from the
developer, you may want to try and uninstall the software and
try our Internet Banking System again.
Q. Do you have any
suggestions or recommended settings for my supported browser to
allow better compatibility with Internet Banking?
**NOTE** - Although we strive to
offer the best support possible, we can not help locate and/or
configure setting nor can we be responsible for adverse results
you may encounter with other web sites, should you make these
changes. This is simply beyond the scope
of our support.

are not available when a user next logs into retail internet
banking, even if a user is bound to the device they are

a user does not have Flash installed and has a cookie manager

Clearing cookies and cache is a standard troubleshooting
practice and can still be used with the understanding that the
user may be challenged next login. Note, that clearing
cookies and cache within IE does not delete the Flash object.

will it still work with your Internet Banking System?

you have a browser installed on your PC, but your Operating
System (older operating systems such as Windows 98 or older PCs

Passwords will only keep outsiders out if they are difficult
to guess! Don't share your password, and don't use the same
password in more than one place. If someone should happen to
guess one of your passwords, you don't want them to be able to
use it in other places. The golden rules of passwords are: (1)
A password should have a minimum of 8 characters, be as
meaningless as possible, and use uppercase letters, lowercase
letters and numbers, e.g., xk28LP97. (2) Change passwords
regularly, at least every 90 days. (3) Do not give out your
password to anyone!
Do NOT write your password down
anywhere! This is one of the most common mistakes a
computer user makes when choosing a password. Don't
write it, Memorize it.
