What is encryption and how does it work?

Encryption is the process by which information sent over the Internet is encoded so that it cannot be read without being decoded. Most secure Web browsers contain encryption software.

Which web browsers do you recommend?

This website has been optimized to work with Internet Explorer.

What do I do if someone learns my User ID or password?

Your User ID is linked to a password, therefore, no one can login without your password. If you suspect that someone knows your password, you can change it online by clicking on "My Profile".

What is cache and why is it important to clear my cache for security measures?

Cache has been designed to improve performance and reduce network traffic. When you view a web page, it is stored in both your browser's memory cache and your computer's disk cache.

Your browser relies on its memory cache when you use the browser "Back" button. Rather than going to the network to retrieve the page, the page is retrieved from the browser memory cache. After you logout of AdvisorAccess, your account information cannot be viewed. However, information may be viewed using the browser "Back" button. To protect the confidential nature of your personal information, we highly recommend that you clear your browser's memory cache or close your browser (which will also clear the browser memory cache) after your session.

You should also be aware that by retrieving a page from cache, you might be provided with stale information.

How do I clear my cache?

In most cases the “Tools” Menue option of your internet browser will allow you to clear your cache or browsing history, however further information is available in your browser’s help file.
