Keep your security up to date

Install updates automatically

Enable automatic updates for all software on your devices, especially your OS. If automatic updates aren’t available, make sure to install updates whenever prompted.

Update during off-hours

If you find you’re prompted to update your software at inconvenient times, try setting a reminder to turn on your device during off-hours, like right before bed. That way, your device can update when you don’t need it and will be more secure when you do.
