To benefit fully from all that the NFN Premium Services have to offer, Javascript must be enabled in your browser.  Normally, this is enabled by default, as is cookies.  Setting procedures to enable Javascript and Cookies for several common browser types is presented below.

On the NFN Premium Services pages, javascript is used for some program features and cookies are used to save your login information on your local computer.   If your browser's cookies are disabled, the NFN Premium Service web site will not be able to save your log in information if you select the login page checkbox to do so.

What is a cookie?
A "cookie" is a small text file which is written by your browser to your hard disk.

This file can not do any damage to your system. It is not a program and it cannot read, write, or destroy any data on your hard disk. The only thing that the NFN Premium Web Services cookie remembers is that you have logged-in and it places the logged in information into your viewing machine's browser cookie folder.  This makes it easy to proceed through the login page process without retyping your login information.  You should check this checkbox option ONLY if you are using your personal computer.  Doing so at a public accessed computer will allow others to enter your account areas.
