The End of Internet Explorer

Internet Explorer

As led up by Microsoft over the past few years – Internet Explorer is reaching it’s end of life. There no longer will be updates and security patches for the browser, and it is highly recommended that all internet users migrate to an updated modern browser, such as Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, or Microsoft Edge. Users who are still dependant on Internet Explorer for Legacy programs have the ability to run Internet Explorer within the Edge browser, which currently recieves updates and security patches. For more information, see past posts from the CU*Answers Web Services Team and related articles.

New Direct Login Widgets

Online Banking Direct Login Widget

Over the next few months, CU*Answers will be updating your credit union Direct Login Widget automatically. Please see the Switch Schedule to find out which day your widget will be updated. Note, the new Direct Login Widget may not be functional until your switch day.

The new Direct Login Widget is responsive—so your current website setup dictates how the widget will appear. Depending on the height you currently have set, the new widget will either show as a form (height greater than 194px) or a button (height less than 194px).

If you are a CU*Answers Web Services client, you may request widget size or website changes to better accommodate your new widget. You may send your update requests to to be updated within 48 work hours at the standard rate. Otherwise, please reach out to your personal web developer to make any necessary adjustments.

Note: The predefined height and width of the standard widget is 300x300px. The width may be adjusted to accommodate your website. Note that if your current login widget has a height of less than 194px, once the widget is updated, your standard widget will shift to a button.
