What is Magento 1 End of Life (EOL)
When new versions of software are released, older versions are maintained for a period of time. But after that time is over, it has reached End of Life. At that point, no more feature or security patches are released, which leaves the outdated software vulnerable to threats. Magento 1 reached EOL in June of 2020, which means if you wanted to extend the life of your store as you decide what's next, you'll need to take action to ensure you stay secure.
