Making Sure TLS 1.2 is Being Used

Making Sure TLS 1.2 is Being Used

Even if your flowerSoft is using the latest version of the credit card approval program, which uses TLS 1.2, your computer may still be using TLS 1.0.

To make sure your computers are using TLS 1.2 during credit card approvals and not TLS 1.0, bring up you Internet Explorer (I am using Internet Explorer 11) and follow these steps …


  1. Click on “Tools”



2. Click on “Internet Options”



3. Click on the “Advanced” tab



4. Scroll all the way down to the bottom of the security section options and make sure “Use TLS 1.0” is un-checked and make sure “Use TLS 1.2” is checked.

Remember that as of July 1st, 2018, computers still using TLS 1.0 will not be able to get credit card approvals.
