U.K government warns Windows 7 users to access online banking.

The UK's National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) is warning people of using online banking or accessing sensitive accounts from devices running Windows 7 from Tuesday, 14 January, when Microsoft ends support for the operating system.

U.K government warns Windows 7 users to access online banking.

The NCSC, the government body for cybersecurity, is encouraging people to upgrade from Windows 7 as soon as possible, due to Microsoft's 2019 decision to stop providing technical support for the software.

"The NCSC would encourage people to upgrade devices currently running Windows 7, allowing them to continue receiving software updates which help protect their devices," the NCSC spokesperson said.

"We would urge those using the software after the deadline to replace unsupported devices as soon as possible, to move sensitive data to a supported device and not to use them for tasks like accessing bank and other sensitive accounts. They should also consider accessing email from a different device."
