Microsoft today has published a notice headlined "TLS 1.0 and TLS 1.1 will be disabled in future Windows OSes" to remind users about the upcoming deprecation of TLS (Transport Layer Security) protocol versions 1.0 and 1.1 in upcoming Windows releases. This is the second such important reminder from the company this week following a previous one where it said that user PCs on Windows 11 21H2 will soon be force-updated.
In case you weren't aware of this upcoming change, Microsoft, almost exactly a month ago, published a guidance about the change. Microsoft noted that currently available Windows versions, which means Windows 11 22H2, 21H2, and Windows 10, will still have TLS 1.0 and TLS 1.1, and this means upcoming feature updates like 23H2, and Windows 12, which comes out next year, will have the feature disabled, and the change will be in place starting with the upcoming Insider builds this month. This is a part of the broader effort to make next-gen Windows more secure.
On the Tech Community blog post, Microsoft has listed the list of affected Windows applications in the Known issues section.
Microsoft will be disabling TLS versions 1.0 and 1.1 on Windows very soon. The company announced it earlier today and is part of its broader strategy to make the next Windows versions more secure.
