Upgrading your browser

Overview

The Cloudflare dashboard requires a web browser that supports TLS 1.2 or newer.

Transport Layer Security (TLS) guarantees encrypted communications between a client and a web server via HTTPS. It replaces the now deprecated Secured Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol. When web traffic is encrypted with TLS, users see a green padlock in their browser window, near the URL box.

TLS 1.2 became the industry standard in 2008.  Both the Payment Cards Industry Security Standards Council (PCI SSC) and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) endorse TLS 1.2 for tighter security on the web. 

TLS versions 1.0 and 1.1 are vulnerable to certain types of cryptographic attacks.


Upgrade your browser

To get TLS 1.2 support, upgrade to the latest version of the following browsers:

  • Apple Safari
  • Google Chrome
  • Mozilla Firefox
  • Microsoft Edge

Visit Browse Happy for the upgrade links of the most popular browsers.


Enable TLS 1.2 on older browsers

Wherever possible, upgrade to the latest version of your browser. However if you are  unable to upgrade, you can try manually enabling TLS 1.2.

If you use Microsoft Internet Explorer 10 (IE10), you can still use the Cloudflare dashboard, once you upgrade to use TLS 12.  To do this: 

  1. Open IE10.
  2. Click Tools > Internet Options > Advanced.
  3. Under Security, check the box labeled Use TLS 1.2.

Note that IE10 is the earliest version that can be enabled for TLS 1.2.
