Why You Need to Keep Your Devices and Web Browsers Up to Date

September 12, 2022
A woman at her computer.

Protect your online accounts like you protect your wallet.

You wouldn’t leave your wallet out in the open – but when your mobile devices and web browsers don’t receive regular updates, your online accounts may be vulnerable.

According to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), we should be keeping our security software, operating system software, and internet browsers and apps updated with the newest version. Why?

“Criminals look to exploit vulnerabilities before the software companies can fix them.
Delaying gives hackers time to access your information.” [Source]

While we do everything we can to keep your accounts safe, updating your devices and web browsers is one of the most important ways you can stay ahead of cybercriminals.

When should I install an update?

As soon as an update becomes available. Whether it’s your mobile device or preferred web browser, it’s always a good idea to install the update immediately. These updates often include security patches to help prevent fraudulent activity on your mobile device, desktop, or laptop.

If you have an older device, updating your software may not be possible. You may want to consider upgrading to a newer device or refrain from accessing sensitive information on your device.
