From September 1st, 2020, several popular web browsers, led by Apple’s Safari will stop trusting SSL certificates issued for longer than 398 days — a 1-year certificate.
To provide SSLs that are supported by popular browsers, major Certificate Authorities will stop issuing 2-year SSL certificates. SSLs.com will implement this change on August 18th, 2020.
- All SSLs purchased for longer than 1 year and activated on August 18th, 2020, or later, will require annual reactivation.
- The change will only affect newly issued SSL. Any SSL purchased from SSLs.com will be issued for 398 days if activated on August 18th or after. If you have a 2-year SSL that was issued before September 1st, it will be trusted in all browsers until its original expiration date
- If you reissue an SSL issued for 2-years on August 18th or after, new SSL will be issued for 1 year. If there is any time left on your certificate when the 398 days are up, you will need to reactivate your SSL to use it
