Your Online Account

If you've got a question about your online account, take a look at our answers to frequently asked questions below.

 

Worried about a security message?

We know that some customers are receiving a warning that our security certificate may be invalid.

The reason you’ve seen this screen is that we’ve updated the security certificate for our website.

Some older computers don’t recognise the authority that approved the certificate. This is why you’re getting the security warning.

There’s an option to continue to the website with a message saying this option ‘is not recommended’. If you choose to follow this link, our website is secure.

To make sure you don’t keep seeing that message, you’ll need to download a small system update directly from Microsoft. You can do this here. Please note, we’re not able to provide support when it comes to installing the above update.

If you’re not a Microsoft user please check with your systems provider for instructions on how to update your root certificates.

I’m having difficulty accessing my account, a security message is appearing, what can I do?

Some of our customers may be experiencing this issue due to updates being out of date on their PC or laptop.

If you use Internet Explorer, you'll need Internet Explorer 8 or higher to use this site. You can download the latest version on the Microsoft Internet Explorer pages.

If you use another browser, we recommend that you use the latest version available.

To check your security settings are up to date, see the Get Safe Online website. You can also see how to switch automatic updating on or off on the Microsoft or Apple pages.
