Privacy Tip of the Week: Keep Your Software Updated

Posted by

Software updates are annoying. Sometimes it seems like there’s a new one every day. Even when they install automatically, they take time to finish and may prevent you from using your device until then. But software updates are important for maintaining your security and privacy online. Even if they’re temporarily inconvenient, the benefits outweigh the annoyance. If that isn’t enough to persuade you, there are other reasons to keep your software updated including:

  • Improved security
  • New features
  • Better device performance
  • They’re free

Improved Security

The world of tech moves quickly, which means as fast as security is improved, it can be breached. Thankfully, companies know that and routinely send out improved security measures with each update. Letting your software become outdated puts your security and privacy at risk.

New Features

Along with better security measures, companies also add new and/or improved features for you to take advantage of. These features can make your overall user experience a better one, while increasing productivity and value.

Better Device Performance

Over time, devices simply slow down. They’re also prone to accumulating bugs, which also reduce performance and may cause systems to crash entirely. Keeping software updated is a great way to keep your device working well for as long as possible.

They’re Free

Perhaps the best benefit of all, software updates are free. Why not take advantage?

Instead of letting those updates pile up, make sure to install them promptly and reap the benefits of modern software.
