However, Adobe Acrobat XI will be end of support on October 15, 2017, which means there will be no more security and product updates, and no more customer support also. You can though keep using the program then, but you'll have to cost more money and time to deal with the downtime of the product. More importantly, your file and data might be exposed to viruses or hackers due to the lack of protection. In this case, you should check here to find out the best alternatives to Adobe Acrobat.
