    I was on Blackberry's support site and I found an interesting thing in their software life cycle overview. The priv software reaches EOL in December 2019. I am wondering if the hub and all other blackberry apps won't be supported after 2019 on the privPRIV software hasn't reached end of life yet-1547757891314.jpeg

    Depends on what you consider supported, they'll still continue to work and be updated but if there's a specific issue that only affects the Priv, it likely won't be addressed.

    I might use an Android phone for a year without security updates... but two years?

    Thank you for clearing that up. I was confused about if apps would stop working after December 2019 but you answered that perfectly. Thanks Bla1ze

    BlackBerry makes the Suite for Enterprise customers who will have a wide range of Android Devices... BlackBerry like most Developers will need to support older versions of Android, yes there will be a minimum.... but even now that something like 5.0.

    Even Google only supports Android 6 and above for updates.

    Nobody's gonna bother hacking the Priv's remaining few dozen users... If my fragile microUSB were still alive, I'd still be on my Priv

    The vast majority of security issues are through user-controlled practices. Unless you are a high value target you should be fine as long as the software that you want to use is still supported.
