Your browser is the program on your PC that allows you to locate and display web pages.
Why do I need to keep my browser up to date?
- The browser program can be vulnerable to browser hijack programs that change the default settings
- For example, if you set www.nationwideuk.ie as your homepage but every time you click on your browser you are automatically directed to a different homepage then your browser may have been hijacked
- You can confirm this by changing the default page back to www.nationwideuk.ie, saving the change and closing your browser
- If, when you click on your browser again, it takes back to the other homepage then this is classic hijack behaviour
How do I keep my browser up to date?
- Similarly to your operating system you should keep your browser up to date and check with your browser supplier regularly for updates and patches
