About Browsers and Encryption

There are many different Web browsers on the market today. The most popular web browsers are Google's Chrome®, Microsoft's Internet Explorer® and Mozilla's Firefox®. These products come in dozens of different versions, and each has a different degree of security.

Web browsers deliver security by encrypting all of the information that travels between your computer and a server into unreadable messages. Even if they are somehow intercepted on the way from your computer to an online service, these encrypted messages are meaningless. Only when they reach their destination can they be decrypted back into useable messages by the server.

40-bit encryption is the most common kind. It's called that because the keys that it uses to encode messages are 40 bits long. For very sensitive transactions, though, the much stronger 128-bit encryption is recommended by all privacy advocates and security professionals.

That's why our new North Winnipeg Online service uses 'strong' 128-bit encryption, and that's why to use North Winnipeg Online, you need to make sure you're using a 128-bit secure version of your Web browser, whether it's from Google®, Microsoft®, or Mozilla®.
