What is TLS 1.2?


TLS stands for Transport Layer Security. It’s a security standard used to encrypt data and create a secure online connection.

When you log in to Bankline, a secure connection is established between our server and your web browser. TLS is used to create that connection and safeguard your data.

TLS 1.2 is one of the most recent versions of the standard and it offers robust protection. Earlier versions are known to have vulnerabilities which make them easier targets for hackers.

We’re committed to protecting the online security of all our customers. For this reason, as of 3rd April 2019, we’ll be switching off Bankline compatibility for browsers that don’t have TLS 1.2 or above.

If you’re still using a browser without TLS 1.2 (or without it enabled) you’ll need to upgrade and check that TLS 1.2 is enabled in your browser settings as soon as possible.

For faster and safer access to Bankline and other websites, we recommend using one of the following browser versions:

  • Internet Explore 11 or later.
  • Chrome 56 or later.
  • Firefox 52 or later.
  • Edge 14 or later.
  • Safari 10 or later.
