What is changing?
Microsoft, Google, Apple and Mozilla are deprecating support of TLS versions 1.0 and 1.1 in their web browsers in the first half of 2020.
- Beginning April 1, 2020, popular web browsers will continue to function but start showing alerts when TLS 1.0 or 1.1 web communication is encountered.
- Then, beginning July 1, 2020, server-to-server communications will change.
Transport Layer Security (TLS) is a security protocol to encrypt and authenticate secure connections across the web, either from a web browser or between web servers. TLS version 1.0 was first defined in 1999, and version 1.1 was introduced in 2006. Due to evolving regulatory requirements and new security vulnerabilities, technology providers have been deprecating their support of TLS versions 1.0 and 1.1.
How will this impact me?
ClickDimensions and Microsoft have been taking steps to ensure that cloud services will not be impacted.

You will be impacted if . . .
- Your organization uses CRM 2015 or older on premise. CRM 2015 and older use TLS 1.1 by default. In order to avoid TLS alerts or errors, take one or more of the following steps.
- Your organization or an IT provider hosts websites, microsites, or web applications on local web servers that are still using TLS 1.0 or 1.1. In order to avoid TLS alerts or errors, update your web server(s). Learn more from Microsoft.
