TLS is an encryption protocol that protects your information when you transmit it over the Internet. It’s the reason you don’t have to be afraid to use your credit card to shop at reputable online stores.

Microsoft has been pushing out updates to Windows computers to make sure they are using the latest TLS standard, which is 1.2. But due to a bug, this might temporarily break your ability to do the following:

  • Sign in to, or get new messages from, native Outlook. (The Web version is OK).
  • Sync OneDrive.
  • Open OneDrive or SharePoint documents in native Word, Excel, or PowerPoint.
  • Sync OneNote.
  • Use Skype for Business.

SolidState is pushing out a fix via LogMeIn. If you experience this problem, try rebooting your computer. If you still have the problem, contact me and I will apply the fix manually.
