Browsers and Internet Security

The Secure site is a safe and secure online investment environment. All personal information and security codes are encrypted using Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology. SSL technology was developed to protect information and data released on the Internet.

To benefit from this security system Old Mutual Wealth recommends the use of an SSL-capable browser that supports 128-bit encryption such as Microsoft’s Internet Explorer 7 and later versions.

Using these browsers ensures that SSL is activated automatically whenever you login to the Old Mutual Wealth Secure areas.

Download the latest version of Internet Explorer.

Secure areas of the site are marked by a padlock or key symbol at the bottom of your browser. As long as this symbol is unbroken or the padlock is in the locked position, you are connected via a secure server.
