Just a reminder that the S9 series  will no longer receive security updates, they were released early in 2018  and  unfortunately are no longer eligible for software support. Note 9 currently still receiving quarterly updates.

See further details here:  https://9to5google.com/2022/04/04/samsung-galaxy-s9-android-updates-drop-support/

Hi @Issyf  Your device may be relatively safe for the  immediate future , best only to use official stores though and follow security practices.  The risk though will increase  and if you can advisable to upgrade in due course.  See some information here https://www.makeuseof.com/safe-use-phone-no-longer-gets-updates/
