I don’t know what Mac OS’s are outdated and not supported (Updated) anymore? @ProTruckDriver  @Ssherjj

My understanding every macOS from El Capitan and earlier do not receive Security or Software updates.

I found this:

https://computing.cs.cmu.edu/desktop/os-lifecycle.html

I don’t think anyone is running the very old OS’s. Will Webroot work on Lion and Mountain Lion???

Not everyone in this world has a bottomless purse (and it’s not just the computers that have to be purchased, it’s also often the peripherals, and even apps, due to compatibility issues—ask @NicCrockett!). In my case, two of my three computers are using these old OSs: one Windows XP 32-bit and the other Windows 7 64-bit.

As I understand it, Webroot collect enough statistics from their customers to know what OSs they are using. Evidently, a sufficient number of their customers (such as myself, such as @NicCrockett’s company) continue to use these OSs for them to deem it worth their while continuing support for us.
