TLS aka Transport Layer Security is yet another networking facility provided only to the Microsoft OS users. For now, its update has been added in operating systems like Windows 8 & Windows 10. So there’s no point in enabling TLS 1.0 in such operating systems. But the problem is that it’s enabled by default. If a user is willing to secure his PC, then he has to Disable TLS 1.0 in Windows 10 by himself. So long, I’ve discovered two basic & safe method to complete this task.
2 Ways To Disable TLS 1.0 in Windows 10
The methods I’m going to talk about are customizing the Windows 10 Registry and using internet options. Both of these methods are safe to imply, but I would suggest you to only imply the steps that are drafted in the guide. Because if you fall into a trap, your Windows 10 may get corrupted and you may need to install the OS from the start. But if you perform the steps as they are drafted, I ensure you that nothing bad will happen. So now without any further due, let’s take you onto the methods to Disable TLS 1.0 in Windows 10:
1) Customize Windows 10 Registry
Step 1: Press Windows + R key to open the Run box. Type “Regedit” in it and press enter.
Step 2: In the Windows 10 Registry navigate to the following path:
Step 3: Right-click on the empty space and click on New > DWORD (32-bit) Value. Name the newly created key as “Enabled”
Step 4: Double-click on the Enabled key and tweak its Value. (If the value is “0”, then don’t change it)
Step 5: Close the Windows 10 Registry Editor and reboot your PC.
2) Deselect “Use TLS 1.0”
- Type “Internet Options” in the search bar and click on the “Open” button
- Navigate to the Advanced tab.
- Scroll down to the last and uncheck the “Use TLS 1.0” checkbox.
- At last, click on the Ok button.
