Known Affected Releases


Description (partial)

The Webex Desktop application logins to the user and redirects them to their IdP, but then the user's IdP displays the message: "You are using an outdated (and likely insecure) browser which must be updated. You will be blocked from accessing confidential information if you do not update".

Windows Desktop App will use Internet Explorer as default browser when authenticating to user's IDP/SSO.  This is a security issue for user's IT since they have dropped Internet Explorer support. MSFT announced Internet Explorer EOL by Aug 17, 2021.
