From May, the payment process using paysafecard will become even more secure

TLS is the successor to Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption and is currently the highest encryption category that exists. With the upgrade to version 1.2, paysafecard wants to ensure that merchants and end customers can rely on maximum security during payment processing. Because when a data attack occurs, it can rapidly become critical.

Update the server software now!

From May 22, it will therefore no longer be possible for merchants to use our system if the TLS 1.2 protocol has not yet been activated and all earlier versions of TLS deleted. This is because the previously utilised protocols and encryption processes of TLS versions 1.0 and 1.1 will be deactivated on this date. Merchants who are not quite sure which version they are currently using can check this at this link: https://www.ssllabs.com/ssltest/analyze.html

If the test shows that your system is not compatible, it should be changed by May 21 at the latest. Only then can payments continue to be processed as they have up to now.

The customer security factor

It is at least as important that the end customers also update their browser and operating systems. Merchants can be very helpful in furthering the development to more security and comfort by explaining to their customers the advantages of regular updates of browsers and operating systems. New browsers and the latest software not only increase security, but also save time and enhance the online experience. Websites are displayed more quickly and the current browser generations definitely support the latest web technologies.
