Brother Industries, Ltd.
October 13, 2015

Dear Valued Customer,

Brother has decided to update its encryption technology in order to secure all Brother websites. After this update, customers using Windows XP may not be able to browse our pages under HTTPS (SSL encryption) during and after December, 2015.

Microsoft stopped support and security patches for Windows XP on April 8, 2014. Because of this, serious security problems have and may continue to occur.
Brother strongly recommends upgrading your Operating System if you still use Windows XP.

How to check if your Operating System is Windows XP

  1. Click [Start] and right-click [My computer]
  2. Click [Properties]
  3. Click the [General] tab and check the information listed under System.
