Support for Magento 1 ended on June 30, 2020. If you’re not on Magento 2, your store is now vulnerable to hackers since Magento will no longer issue security patches.
Here’s what Adobe said in a recent blog:
If you have a store that continues to run on Magento 1 after June 30, please be aware that from that date forward you have increased responsibility for maintaining your site’s security and PCI DSS compliance. Beyond the EOS date, Adobe will not be responding to any further security issues for Magento 1. Be sure to install Adobe’s final Magento 1 security patch (here). No further patches will be issued by Adobe.

Magento 2 migration FAQs
What’s happening with Magento 1?
Support is ending for Magento 1 in June 2020.
What if I stay on Magento 1?
You’ll be running unsecured software with no PCI compliance, unfixed bugs, slower site speed, and increased security breaches. Not a pretty picture.
What are my options if I don’t want to migrate to Magento 2?
Your only viable option is to move to another platform. This is a complex, time-consuming, and costly process. You risk losing content, breaking internal links, losing ranking and traﬃc.
Can I keep my extensions?
You may not need to. Magento 2 has many native features that replace extensions. If you need to keep some, it’s easy to find a Magento 2 version in the new Magento Marketplace.
Do I have to redesign my store?
