Check your computer systems

Stay current to ensure member benefits

To ensure that all online transactions work smoothly NRVC encourages members to check their operating systems and browsers to see that they are using relatively current editions.

An "operating system" is the overall platform from which a computer functions. The two main systems are Windows (for pcs) or iOS (for Macs). A "browser" is the software that lets people use the internet. Popular browsers are Firefox, Safari, Chrome, and Internet Explorer.

As of September 18, 2017, pc users who wish to make credit card purchases on the NRVC website (membership registration, HORIZON subscription orders, and online store orders) must have one of the following:

1. Windows 7 or later operating system.

2. A browser released since approximately 2013. These browsers include the following forms or later editions: Chrome v22, Firefox v27, Safari v7, or Internet Explorer 11. 

Mac and Linux users will also need to be sure they are running the latest (or a recent) browser version. 

Why newer versions are needed

Support for a web security protocol known as TLSv1.0 is being phased out internationally because it is no longer considered secure. Beginning in late September NRVC's online merchant service provider will no longer allow purchases from outdated browsers using this protocol. If you are using an outdated browser or an outdated operating system after late September, you will be able to view and navigate the NRVC website but will be unable to make credit card purchases.

Further ahead, in June 2018, TLSv1.0 support will be withdrawn altogether, and anyone using older browsers will not be able to view the NRVC website at all.

NRVC regrets any inconvenience this may cause, but the choice is outside the hands of our staff and contractors. The world of high-tech crime continues to advance, and security systems have to advance to stay ahead of the game.
