Security Certificate warning message
If you are using an older web browser, such as Netscape version 4, you may get a warning message
while accessing the secured pages; it will tell you that EquiFax is not a certified authority. This
is not true, it is your web browser that is so old that it does not know who Equifax is. Equifax is a
mother/partner company of GeoTrust which issues secure certificates
just as Verisign does. For this reason, as well as for other security reasons we strongly recommend that
you update your web browsers to a newer version, like Netscape 7, Microsoft Internet Explorer 6, or Mozilla 1.0.1.
We recommend Mozilla since it is developed by a non-profit organization that do not favor monopoly in one
one way or the other, it is based on the same fundation as Netscape (Gecko) and in many ways behaves the same.
You can download mozilla from Mozilla.Org, it
comes for most major platforms like Windows, Linux, Mac, and other Unices.

that brings you to GeoTrust website. If you see no such icon below or at the left, your browser may
