We take security seriously at Articulate. We understand how important data protection is to our customers. To safeguard your data, we require the highest level of encryption for internet communication with our servers.

All services accept only Transport Layer Security (TLS) 1.2, which is built into all modern web browsers and operating systems. Earlier versions of TLS are no longer supported.

Most users won’t notice any difference in their day-to-day workflow as a result of this security enhancement. However, if you’re using outdated software, you could experience these symptoms:

  • Storyline and Studio help links, such as tutorials on the start screens, won’t work.
  • The check-for-updates feature reports that there are no software updates even when one is available.
  • Articulate 360 users may see an error when signing into the desktop app: There was a problem connecting to Articulate 360. Please check your internet connection and try again.

The good news is it’s easy to fix these issues and improve your security at the same time. Here’s how:

  1. Install the latest updates for Microsoft Windows.
