    Hi eva,
    My website uses letsencrypt ssl and cloudflare ssl set. I checked my url in ssllabs.com and found the grade "B" in all its tests. Can you tell what is the reason for a lower grade? How can i improve it to "A"

    Regards

    should list the reason on ssllabs results page, usually related to TLSv1.0 and TLSv1.1 support still being enabled for TLS protocols. If you have Cloudflare, just set in SSL/TLS tab minimum TLS version to TLSv1.2 to disable TLSv1.0 and TLSv1.1. Note, if you have older visitors using older browser/devices which only support TLSv1.1 and lower, they will no longer be able to visitor your server. Modern web browsers have/are deprecating TLSv1.1 and lower anyway but if you have older users/devices, remember they will be affected.

    In that case, I will leave it as it is. There may be some users using older devices.
