The Daily Courier and its associated websites are undergoing an upgrade that will affect people using older browsers, such as Safari and Internet Explorer.
Have you ever encountered problems with your web browser, while accessing Internet sites? This is because Safari (versions below 13) and all versions of Internet Explorer do not include up-to-date security protections.
In recent years, for example, many businesses and government entities with websites have suffered ransomware attacks. And on June 1, 2022, Prescott Newspapers, Inc. – via dCourier.com – will perform a necessary security update that will affect subscribers using these older web browsers.
This update will prevent modern security attacks that can compromise usernames and passwords.
Unfortunately, the browsers mentioned above do not support this modern security update and after the update they will no longer be able to connect to dCourier.com.
Understand what will happen:
• Until June 1, 2022, if you are using these older web browsers, you will be able to log in and view content as you did;
• After June 1, 2022, if you are using one of the web browsers, you will no longer be able to log in or play content.
How to check if your browser will be affected:
• Safari: Go to https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT204416 for Apple’s instructions on checking and updating your version of Safari. You will need to use or update to Safari 13 or higher.
• Internet Explorer: Microsoft is ending support for Internet Explorer on June 15, 2022. If you currently use Internet Explorer, you can update to Microsoft’s new web browser, Microsoft Edge, by visiting https: //support.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-edge/switching-from-internet-explorer-to-microsoft-edge-a6f7173e-e84a-36a3-9728-3df20ade9b3c.
You can also switch to other popular web browsers, Google Chrome at google.com/chrome/downloads/ or Firefox at https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/new/.
