Is Windows XP safe for my sites/business?
I still use Windows XP - is there any risk to my sites passwords etc? And, should I change to latest version of Windows for best security? i

Well.. it's been 2 years since the Microsoft ended support for Windows XP, and since they are not supporting it anymore, it does mean that any product which it's not getting updates may have some really high risk security vulnerabilities . Also, i've heard that many softwares will stop supporting it. Windows XP it's abandoned by Microsoft, but i know that many people are still using it because it was an amazing OS.
However, i would not recommend to use something which it's not updated.
Yea I agree there is a bigger risk that you take when the company does not support the product any more and with no updates coming out for it it is safe to say that you do risk your self using an old operating system don't get wrong cause Windows xp was indeed a great OS but I think it would be best to move on from that os and get your self some thing a little more new that way you have all the back up and support that comes along with the new devices , you should look into a upgrade in my opinion
Yes, there is a possibility you may be vulnerable with Windows XP.
I recommend you upgrade at least to Windows 7 if you are not ready for Windows 10. Before the update make sure your current computer is capable to run at least windows 7.
You should definitely think about upgrading. If not to Windows 10 then Windows 7 as the security and stability of them is much better than Windows XP. Plus with Microsoft no longer supporting them it means there will be no more updates to any vulnerabilities or holes and weaknesses it has which means that you are putting yourself at greater risk or picking up an infection. However, what OS you are using doesn't really make a difference when it comes to your sites passwords. Only in that if your OS is ever infected with some malware or something that tries to steal your browser passwords but these are all encrypted anyway. But a determined savvy hacker will know how to decrypt them but that all depends on if they managed to infect your PC or not and there's a greater chance of that happening if you're still running Windows XP! I really think it's time for you to upgrade Sanfora!
Definitely NOT Safe. Last time I was at a hospital, in the one of the rooms they were running Windows XP versions! Windows XP at a hospital.. Seriously! Why would they want to run Windows XP at a hospital where there are so many vulnerabilities and a hacker could hack the system, and find out it's a hospital and change a lot of data which then could result in death..
I love Windows XP, but unfortunately it's no longer supported, and it's vulnerable to too many viruses and intrusions. Long live Windows XP, it was nice while it still lasted.
Our old desktop is running on Windows XP ever since we bought it and I don’t see anything wrong with that old operating system. In fact, we feel very comfortable with it. And I don’t think it is unsafe using an old operating system although there are facilities that you cannot use anymore like the Chrome browser updates does not apply and even the cloud storage cannot be availed of. But for sure, it is safe to use Windows XP.
