As communicated via your tenant admin center in message MC278815 (August ’21) Microsoft 365 apps and services ended providing support for Internet Explorer 11 in August, 2021.
Beginning mid-January, 2023, access to SharePoint Online and OneDrive from Internet Explorer 11 will be hard blocked for all users. Users should access these services through a modern browser, and we recommend Microsoft Edge as a faster, more innovative browser than IE11.
When this will happen:
How this will affect your organization:
Once the hard block is deployed, the connection requests will fail and users will no longer be able to access these services through IE11. These users would need to use a modern browser, such as Microsoft Edge, to continue accessing SharePoint Online and OneDrive.

What you need to do to prepare:
If you still use IE11 to access SharePoint or OneDrive content, we strongly recommend you review the following guidelines to help avoid service disruption for users:
- Deploy a modern browser such as Microsoft Edge
- Prepare your SharePoint environment for the retirement of Internet Explorer 11 for Microsoft 365 apps and services – SharePoint in Microsoft 365 | Microsoft Docs
Note: If your organization has already finished upgrading to Microsoft Edge, no further actions are needed.
