What is SConnect and how to install it?

SConnect is a browser extension that can be used to access the 3SKey portal. SConnect makes it possible for the 3SKey portal to communicate with tokens directly in the browser using JavaScript.

SConnect is a Java applet free method for applications to communicate with tokens and can be used as an alternative to Java. We recommend that end-users install the SConnect browser extension now. Java applets are being discontinued for industry security initiatives.

Note about Java : Your signing application might still require Java, please contact your provider for more information. If you did not install SConnect you can also use Java and Internet Explorer 11 to login to the 3SKey portal. If installed, Sconnect will be the preferred method of logging in to the 3SKey portal.

SConnect is supported on the latest versions of Firefox, Chrome and Internet Explorer 11.

How to install SConnect?

You must install the SWIFT Token Client before installing SConnect. Please refer to the How to install your token software page to install the SWIFT Token Client and SConnect.

The installation of the SConnect browser extension can also be triggered automatically by browsing to an application that uses SConnect.

Detailed installation and uninstallation steps can be found in the SConnect FAQ.
