Either you update your Windows 7,8.1 or your data become prone to bugs and security issue 

Microsoft is to end security support for Windows 7 and Windows 8.1. The support for Windows 7 and 8.1 was withdrawn earlier in 2020 but it was extended for those who paid Microsoft’s Extended Security Update. This allowed users of these OSes to extend the security support by three years back in early 2020. This was a deliberate move by Microsoft to push the users towards Windows 11.

The date that has been decided to withdraw this is January 10 when Microsoft will release Microsoft Edge 109. The Edge will be the last version of the browser to support Windows 7 and Windows 8.1. Though the browser will work even after the withdrawal of security support, it will be prone to security issues and bugs. Microsoft has clearly said that it won’t be offering ESU after January 10 for Windows 8.1 and continuing usage of it will increase the security risk.

A large number of users will have to shift towards Windows 10, and Windows 11, or they will have to buy a new laptop. Though we suggest you go with Windows 11 because it supports the usage of  Android applications on laptops.
