And have you been using it on the same computer for all that time?
The site you linked to looks like one from a bygone age, and it does say, on that page, "... accountunity has been designed to take advantage of the security features of Internet Explorer 6 ..."! And their FAQ says, "The Portable Profile feature allows you to save your private details onto a floppy disk ..."!
In any case, the real question for folks looking for something like this is how does it deal with two factor authentication -- and will it still work after the 14th of September?
FDIBP needed you to use Internet Explorer - there was something specific in it that it needed to work (can't remember what).
As for 2FA - it depends how it is implemented. If it is to log in, then FDIBP or similar then simply won't work as it cannot know the 2FA bit. If the 2FA is needed after login to authenticate the transaction, then it will work fine.
First Direct obviously recognised this some years ago when you could either log in to their own site using a password (so FDIBP would work) but you were not allowed to set up any new payment beneficiaries - if you wanted to do that you either had to phone up or log in using a 'secure' 2FA code from their app which you couldn't do through FDIBP.
