    Outdated plugins may not be compatible with newer versions of WordPress and may cause damage to your website after WordPress update. When this happens, we will have to disable the plugin and also your website may be void of functionality unless we can find an equivalent device. The problem that exists is protection. Outdated plugins are always more vulnerable to security attacks without the knowledge of the owner of the website.
    That's why we make plugin updates mandatory for your hosting service as well as WordPress.
