Operating Systems that support modern (TLS) encryption
Updated Thursday January 7th 2021 / Category Web Hosting

Here is a table that shows the SSL/TLS version support for Microsoft Windows and Mac OSX. The important thing to keep in mind here, is that any version of SSL and TLS 1.0 and TLS 1.1 are now considered insecure. Whereas TLS, 1.2 and 1.3 are secure.

Operating System SSL 2 SSL 3 TLS 1.0 TLS 1.1 TLS 1.2 TLS 1.3
Windows XP YES YES YES NO NO NO
Windows XP – Service Pack 3 YES YES YES YES NO NO
Windows Vista YES YES YES YES NO NO
Windows 7 YES YES YES YES YES NO
Windows 8 YES YES YES YES YES NO
Windows 10 YES YES YES YES YES NO

Android 1.0 to 4.4.4 YES YES YES NO NO NO
Android 4.4.4+ YES YES YES YES YES NO

What should I do if I am using a version of Microsoft Windows or Mac OSX that doesn’t support TLS 1.2 or above?

The best thing to do, would be to update your Operating System to the latest version possible. This will ensure that your computer can use modern encryption and connect securely.
