@DanielWestbrook  obviously you are fine at the moment but a  risk  when  your Device reaches the end of support. I would suggest  that you do not download apps out with the official and also be selective about the apps you do install (as there can still be some vulnerabilities).  it is advisable to also limit permissions.  Ensure that anti virus app is  running and also be wary of Public wifi.

Some information here https://www.bitdefender.co.uk/blog/hotforsecurity/coming-surge-in-unsupported-android-devices-poses-... 

I do not work for Samsung or make Samsung Products but provide independent advice and valuable contributions.

It all depends on what you do day to day. At the moment A52s is getting monthly updates, but soon Samsung will downgrade that to quarterly updates meaning it will get updates every 3 months.
