According to Microsoft, the Windows 7 End of Life phase begins on January 14, 2020. As of that date, Microsoft will no longer provide support or security updates to the operating system. In the 4th quarter of 2018, 37% of Windows operating system users were on Windows 7 (Home and Pro). That means hundreds of millions of people are impacted by the change.
How does this affect my security?
Can I keep using Windows 7?
You can keep using Windows 7, it’s not going to stop working, but those still using the Windows 7 operating system are immediate targets for security breaches and compromised data. This is because, without security patches and updates, there is nothing to prevent hackers from manipulating the system to exploit you and the hundreds of millions of users just like you.
Procrastinating on your operating system upgrade could be the most devastating choice you never made.
