If you are using QuickBooks 2014 / QuickBooks Enterprise 14.0 or earlier, you may see the message:
Due to the new TLS 1.2 security protocol, your version of QuickBooks may not work with many features that use an Internet connection after June 30, 2018. You may need to update your system to keep features such as product re-installation, password reset, and Intuit Data Protect.
TLS 1.2 is an internet security protocol that is quickly becoming an industry security standard. You can visit this PCI Security article for more information. In order to provide greater security and abide by the security standards, all connections used by QuickBooks Desktop to access Intuit services will need to meet certain system requirements after June 30, 2018. At this date, older TLS versions are no longer supported for compliance reasons. If these requirements are not met, services that include, but not limited to, the following will be impacted:
|Operating System||The operating system needs to be Windows 7 or later. Appropriate operating systems include:
Visit Microsoft’s Windows store for purchase information and help with upgrading your operating system.
|Internet Explorer||Please make sure that you are using Internet Explorer 11 for the best security, and continuing updates by Microsoft.
|.Net Framework||The .Net version will need to be 4.5.2 or greater. Please update to a later version of .Net as needed.
|Internet Explorer Group Policy||If prompted by an error message, you may need to talk to your IT person/department to allow TLS 1.2 protocol in Internet Explorer.
