We can suggest a workaround that is allowing many users to remain connected to Virtual Terminal and run business normally. Launch Mozilla Firefox, then press CTRL+SHIFT+P. You'll see a new window/tab with a mask icon next to the Minimize button, and the words "Private Browsing" in the tab. From here, navigate to https://www.sagepayments.net/virtualterminal or https://www.sageexchange.com/sep and log in normally. This is not a guaranteed workaround, but we have seen many successful cases using this option.

Users seem to have the most success using Google Chrome, so please use that browser if it is an option.
