Many Websites Will Not Work on Older Android Versions in 2021
So if you own an old Android mobile phone that runs on versions previous to 7.1.1 Nougat, you will need to consider an upgrade. People using older versions of Android will not be able to access many secure websites. Over 200 million websites will not be recognized as secure to users who own Android devices that run older Android versions.
One of the leading certificate authorities, Let’s Encrypt has issued SSL certificates to over 30 percent of all websites. According to Let’s Encrypt, more than 30 percent of Android devices are currently running on the older Android version. Such old devices will encounter certificate errors when the user tries to visit such websites using Let’s Encrypt certificates starting from 2021.
However, there are ways to access such websites and there are certain options. People using such devices can access these websites using Firefox, according to Let’s Encrypt. While they can temporarily solve their problem by switching to Firefox, it is important to update the software to avoid certificate errors.
