Starting June 2018, user systems that are not compliant with the Transport Layer Security (TLS) 1.2 protocol could potentially lose access to some Adobe services. On July 14, 2021, any client systems that do not support the TLS 1.2 protocol will lose access to all Adobe products and services. Ensure that all user and client systems are TLS 1.2 compliant before this date.


Understand, why you are seeing this message:

The Adobe apps, web page, or service you are trying to access requires a more secure network connection with your web browser, operating system, or app. It is mandatory to use TLS 1.2 for secure network communication and data exchange between users’ systems and Adobe apps and web services.


At the end of May 2018, Adobe deprecated support for lower versions of TLS (including TLS 1.0 and 1.1). For technical details around the TLS 1.2 protocol, see Frequently asked questions.


You can resume the service, following these steps:

Modern web browsers support TLS 1.2. Upgrading your browser can enable you to access these apps and services. You can download and install one of the following popular browsers:

If you're using another browser, ensure that it supports TLS 1.2.

Your operating system and application frameworks must also support TLS 1.2. If upgrading your browser does not resolve your problem, ensure that your computer meets the following system requirements:
