To be sure, you will need Netscape version 4.05 or Microsoft Internet Explorer browsers, version 4 or above.

Over and above what Bicom Systems does to safeguard your privacy and security, there are a number of things you can do to protect yourself from Internet fraud:

Choose a password you can remember but others will not guess, change it regularly, and if you do write it down, keep it somewhere safe and secure.

So, if you have registered and logged in, remember to log off. Clear any ‘cache’ so there is no record of any transactions left on screen – both Netscape and Internet Explorer let you do this. We also recommend you then close your browser so any history of the session is cleared. As an extra precaution your session on many areas of the www.bicomsystems.com will terminate if you have not used the site for 20 minutes.
