Be a cybersecurity superhero by keeping your devices updated



Patching your operating system and applications is critical to keeping your data safe.

Notifications to update our apps, software, and operating systems usually seems to come at the most inconvenient time. Don’t ignore them or delay your updates because it will be even more inconvenient if your data is stolen or your device becomes corrupted.

Sometimes updates are released to add new features, but more often than not, updates contain patches for security vulnerabilities that have been found. Before your devices can be exploited, install those updates.
