To help you make this your home for work, we support several different browsers so that you can use the one you like the best. Since updated browsers are safer from various cyber-attacks and identity theft, we help maintain your safety and security by only officially supporting the latest two versions of these browsers:

Desktop Android iOS
Google Chrome
Microsoft Edge
Mozilla Firefox
Apple Safari
Google Chrome Apple Safari

Enable TLS

No matter which browser you’re using, you must enable TLS protocols to securely access the Upwork website and app. We have disabled SSL protocols because they are outdated and insufficiently secure. This is generally only an issue on older Windows systems.

If you are on a Windows PC and have a fast and stable Internet connection but still experience SSL error messages when visiting or a full cache in the Upwork desktop app, please check that you have TLS protocols enabled. We disabled SSL protocols to improve security for all users and protect from cyberattacks (for example, SSL is vulnerable to POODLE attacks).

To Enable TLS on Windows

  1. Open your Control Panel, select Internet Options, then choose the Advanced tab.
  2. Scroll down to the Security section of the Settings list. Uncheck the SSL boxes to disable all SSL protocols and check the TLS boxes to enable all TLS protocols.
