On August 1st, 2021, Klippa will be deprecating support for Transport Layer Security (TLS) versions 1.0 and 1.1 to align with industry best practices for security and data integrity.

What is TLS?
Transport Layer Security (TLS) is a protocol that secures your data as it traverses the internet. Whenever you visit the Klippa website, use any of our apps (Linux, macOS, or Windows), or make requests using the Klippa API, TLS helps keep your data secure. Early versions of the TLS protocol are now becoming obsolete as newer and more secure versions are released, which is why Klippa is making this change.

What happens after August 1st, 2021?
After the deprecation date, all communications with the Klippa API will be required to use TLS v1.2 or higher. Using TLS version 1.2 (or any subsequent version of TLS) increases overall security and makes Klippa reliable and safe for everyone.

Who is affected?
This change will affect anyone who accesses the Klippa API from an older web browser/HTTP client or a device running an older operating system that is not compatible with TLS v1.2.

If you’re already accessing Klippa using a compatible browser/HTTP client or device, you don’t need to make any changes. If you find that your browser/HTTP client or device is not compatible, you’ll need to update to a supported version to maintain access the Klippa API after August 1st, 2021.
