    #66 TLS1.0 / Security Upgrades v0.8.93 2018-07-13

    Bimmerlabs will be officially retiring TLS 1.0 security protocol support in order to align with industry best practices and ensure that your data continues to be highly secure.

    TLS stands for “Transport Layer Security.” It is a protocol that provides privacy and data integrity between two communicating applications. It’s the most widely deployed security protocol used today, and is used for web browsers and other applications that require data to be securely exchanged over a network.

    As of July 16, 2018, we will disable the TLS 1.0 encryption protocol, which may prevent you from using Bimmerlabs functionality. To prevent disruption, you may need to upgrade your browser to a version that supports TLS 1.1 or higher.

    Secure Browsers:

    The following browsers support using TLS 1.1 or higher. If you are NOT using these browsers/versions, you may not be able to access some or all of our online services.

    • Microsoft Internet Explorer (IE): Version 11 and higher
    • Microsoft Edge: All versions
    • Mozilla Firefox: Version 27 and higher
    • Google Chrome: Version 38 and higher
    • Apple Safari Desktop: Versions 7 and higher for OS X 10.9 (Mavericks) and higher (7)
    • Apple Safari Mobile: Versions 5 and higher for iOS 5 and higher
    • Google Android OS: Android 5.0 and higher

    How to test your if your browser is compatible:

    SSL Labs provides a compatibility test that can be used to verify web browsers support TLS 1.1 or later:

    If the Protocol Support box on the validation site says, “Your user agent has good protocol support.”, you are all set – no action is required.
