Upcoming completion of security upgrades

Over the last several months, we’ve been quietly rolling out infrastructure upgrades to make browsing sites in our ecosystem more secure. We will wrap up these upgrades on 1 October 2019, ceasing support for older security protocols (TLS 1.0 and TLS 1.1) on the remainder of our sites.

TLS is a critical security protocol used to secure web traffic over HTTPS. All modern browsers already support TLS version 1.2, and many of them will be dropping support for these older protocol versions next year (see links in the References section below). In preparation for that change and to align with industry best practice, we have been removing support for those protocols from our sites.

If you haven’t already, you’ll need to upgrade to a modern browser version to continue using Envato. After this change, if you continue to use an unsupported browser you’ll see an error when trying to connect to us.

Here’s a list of browsers and version numbers that are affected by these changes:

  • Chrome versions prior to 30
  • Firefox versions prior to 27
  • Safari versions prior to 7
  • Microsoft Internet Explorer versions prior to 11
  • Opera versions prior to 17
  • Samsung Internet versions prior to 4

You can test your browser by going to the following URL:
https://www.ssllabs.com/ssltest/viewMyClient.html

If you see the text "Your user agent supports TLS 1.2”, your browser will continue to work with our sites.

Great stuff, @rosssimpson .
I have an idea for the engineering team regarding Videohive. Please, think on making the normal resolution of the preview video to be 1920x1080 and not 960x540.

Hello!

This maintenance is complete; our sites no longer accept connections using TLSv1.1 or lower.
