Microsoft is ending support for Microsoft accounts and other services in Internet Explorer on November 13. This move comes after Microsoft confirmed that it would phase out support for Internet Explorer 11 in the coming months.
Microsoft is ending support for Office 365 services for Internet Explore next year. Ahead of the end of support, Microsoft has now issued a new warning for organizations or users still using Internet Explorer.
We’ve obtained a copy of an email sent to businesses and organizations that warns Internet Explorer will lose support for Microsoft accounts and apps/services on November 13, 2020.
Microsoft says it will end support of Internet Explorer for My Apps, My Account, My Access, and My Groups beginning November 13, 2020. The company recommends users to use Microsoft Edge, Chrome, or Firefox.
“You are receiving this message because our reporting indicates your organization may be using Internet Explorer to access My Apps, My Account, My Access, and My Group,” the email reads.
Microsoft is currently sending the above email to customers part of organizations with active Microsoft 365 subscription. If you recently used Internet Explorer to access any of your Microsoft services, you might receive the email later this month.
“Users will no longer be able to use Internet Explorer to access My Apps, My Account, My Access, and My Groups, when this change is implemented,” the company stated in the email.
Internet Explorer is not as popular as it once was and Microsoft is now focusing on Chromium-based Edge browser. In August, Microsoft confirmed that it will drop support for Office 365, OneDrive, Outlook, etc in 2021 for users still using the Internet Explorer 11.
If you want to use Internet Explorer to access older websites, Microsoft says you use the new Internet Explorer legacy mode in Microsoft Edge. This feature is designed to help organizations and even users access old sites that were designed for Microsoft’s legacy browser.
