Use a Chromebook that no longer receives security updates | Characteristics


Question: My HP Chromebook will hit the automatic update expiration in September. I rarely use it, but wish I could shop online with it. How dangerous is it to keep using a Chromebook that isn’t continuously updated? Would it make sense to install Bitdefender security software to protect the Chromebook? – Julie O’Brien, St. Paul, Minn.

A: All Chromebooks come with a built-in obsolescence – the “auto-update expiration” date. After that, the device will stop receiving software updates. There is no upgrade you can do to avoid it.
