128-bit Encryption
To determine if your version of Microsoft Internet Explorer (8.0 to 11.0) supports SSL protocol with 128-bit encryption, click Help from the browser menu and choose About Internet Explorer. If the Cipher Strength reads "128-bit", then you should be able to access Employee Express. If the Cipher Strength reads "40-bit", that means you will need to update your browser to the 128-bit encryption version.

Internet Explorer 11.0 and up:
In the menu bar, click File, then click on Properties. In the Properties window under Connection, the encryption strength should be 128.

Browsers typically store/save pages displayed on your monitor to your hard disk. This can allow others to see your personal information if they have access to your machine. When you are operating in the SSL mode, this automatic saving or caching can be turned off.

Deleting Temporary Internet Files (Clearing the Cache)
As you view web pages, the files and pictures associated with those pages are stored in the Temporary Internet Files folder on your computer. This speeds up the display of pages you frequently visit or have already seen because your browser can open them from your computer instead of from the web. When you delete these files, it is referred to as "clearing the cache". To Delete Your Temporary Internet Files you should search your browser's help section for this topic.

There is one other security setting that needs to be verified for Internet Explorer, ensuring that JavaScript is turned on. This is accomplished by clicking on Tools from the browser menu, choosing Internet Options, and selecting the tab labeled Advanced. Be sure under the Java VM category that Java JIT Compiler is enabled.
