Important information about Sage 50 US version 2020.1 and earlier

This post only applies to you if you are using Sage 50 version 2020.1 and earlier.  

In order to utilize the most current TLS (Transport Layer Security) protocol recommended by third-party standards organizations, you must be on Sage 50 US Accounting version 2020.2 or later by September 30, 2022. After that date, you will be unable to install and reactivate version 2020.1 and prior versions of Sage 50 US Accounting. Because of this, we strongly recommend you upgrade to the latest supported version (2022.0) of Sage 50 to receive critical security updates relating to this protocol that better help protect your data. If you are using Windows 7, you may need to perform additional steps. Please refer to the following documentation from Microsoft: Update to enable TLS 1.1 and TLS 1.2 as default secure protocols in WinHTTP in Windows.
