Admin impact



As previously announced, IE11 is being retired through two phases: a redirection phase, in which devices are progressively redirected from IE to Microsoft Edge over the months following June 15, and a Windows Update phase, in which IE will be permanently disabled.

For organizations that do not want to wait for the gradual redirection, or prefer to transition all of their users off of IE11 at once with Group Policy, the Disable IE Policy is our strongly recommended option to control the timing and rollout of the IE retirement process for their users.

Since many organizations have end of year IT freezes and holiday time off, we recommend applying the Disable IE Policy by November 1, 2022 to avoid surprises and business disruption in case IE dependent websites were missed.

When will this happen:

November 1, 2022
