Is the Zenfone 9 safe to use without security updates?

Rising Star I

So my phone hasn't received a security update since June? I'm staring at the middle of October and I've read about some pretty serious zero day updates in the last couple of Android security releases.  Legit question, is this phone safe to use currently? I've always had Samsung or Pixels so this lack of regular updates is concerning. I think I read the ZF10 is ahead of us in updates which I don't get, the phones aren't that dissimilar?! Anyway, safe to use or risky?
