Security support for many models of Chromebooks has expired or will expire this year or next.

Evert Chromebook comes with a built-in auto expiration date. After that date, the device no longer receives automatic updates. These updates add the latest features, but are also important to keep your device secure.

According to Google, “These updates depend on many device specific non-Google hardware and software providers that work with Google to provide the highest level of security and stability support. For this reason, older Chrome devices cannot receive updates indefinitely to enable new OS and browser features.”

Once your device is no longer eligible for auto updates, it won’t suddenly stop working. However, it won’t be secure and it may not work with many apps and services. There’s no option to update the system. You’ll just need to switch to a new device.

Here’s a list of devices from big manufacturers with expired support as well as devices for which support is ending within the next year. For our list, devices are sorted by manufacturer
