Make IE6 able to use secure pages - Enabling TLS support on IE6

First of all, if you're still using Internet Explorer 6 (IE6) at this point, you are using a very old and unsecured Web browser.  You really need to either upgrade to a modern version of Internet Explorer, or else you should be using a different brand of browser, such as Google Chrome or Firefox.

That being said, if you're still using IE6 and you try using a secure Web page at Lottery Post (or USA Mega), you may find that it doesn't work.  An example of a secure page is the Log In page, which uses a secure (encrypted) connection to ensure that nobody can snoop on you and see your password travel across the Internet.

The reason it fails in IE6 is that all the old security methods that were once really secure when IE6 was first built are no longer secure, and are considered security risks.  So in order to make IE6 work you have to enable a more secure method called "TLS" (which stands for Transport Layer Security).  Fortunately, it is fairly easy to configure in IE6.

  1. In Internet Explorer, go to the Tools menu, and select Internet Options.
  2. Select the Advanced tab.
  3. Scroll to the Security section (near the bottom of the list).
  4. Check Use TLS 1.0 (see illustration below).
  5. Click OK.

After you complete these steps, you should be good to go (and much more secure).
