    Technical Support

    The American Board of Family Medicine is committed to providing the best possible support for all ABFM website users and to making every effort to support current and predominately used operating systems and browser versions.

    Minimum Supported Browser Versions

    Version 11.0 Version 36.0 Version 31.0 Version 5.0

    Using the latest release of a browser provides: a more secure online experience and better user experience. New browser releases offer the latest security enhancements, bug patches, etc.

    As is common to many websites and their applications, certain software is necessary to view and interact with the ABFM web portal. We recommend Adobe Reader, a free software, to enable PDF downloads. Also, certain functions within the portal require Adobe Flash, also free, for viewing capability.

    A few necessary options or settings should be enabled to ensure complete compliance with our applications.

    Each browser should have JavaScript and Cookies enabled.  

    The American Board of Family Medicine uses Transport Layer Security (TLS) to encrypt the personal and financial information being sent over the Internet. Your browser should display a locked padlock icon to indicate that TLS encryption is being used. TLS is a modern replacement for SSL and does not contain the recently discovered security defects which are present in SSL.
