In order to provide our customers with a reliable and secure connection to StockFetcher, on November 1, 2015, we will begin disabling access to www.stockfetcher.com from browsers that do not support SSL versions TLS 1.1 & TLS 1.2.

The chart below shows what O/S (Operating Systems) and Browsers support TLS 1.1 & TLS 1.2. As you can see, only Windows Vista and XP system users that use Internet Explorer as their browser will not have the ability to support TLS 1.1 & 1.2. According to our most recent stats, Windows XP, Vista and older PC users using Internet Explorer as their browser represent less than 2% of the PC’s that access this site.

In order to maintain a StockFetcher subscription, a handful of Windows XP/Vista users will need to install another browser such as Chrome or FireFox to continue to access www.stockfetcher.com.

Operating System / Browser Version

Support TLS 1.2

All Windows O/S using last 9 versions of FireFox

YES

All Windows and Mac O/S using last 9 versions of Google Chrome

YES

All Windows O/S using last 9 versions of Opera

YES

All Windows 7 & 8 using last 4 versions of Internet Explorer

YES

All Windows Vista using Internet Explorer

NO

All Windows XP using Internet Explorer

NO

All Windows O/S using Edge (Internet Explorer)

YES

All Mac O/S using the last 2 versions of Safari

YES


Note: Although 98% of all PC/Browser combinations currently in use support TLS 1.1 & TLS 1.2, there is a chance that they may not be enabled in your browser settings. This could be especially true if you’re using an older browser version. If you’re using one of the supported OS/Browsers listed above and cannot access this site after this change, please follow the instructions below.
