Tech Tip Tuesday… need an update?

Keep personal devices updated with the latest software!

What is software? Software is instructions that tell a computer or any device what to do.

What is an Update? An update is new, improved, or fixed software, which replaces older versions of the same software. Think of it as small, frequent improvements. The sooner you install these updates the better. The updates make it less likely your system is at risk for a cyber-attack.

In conclusion, any device that runs software needs updates. Whether it is a computer, a phone, or even a smart TV, all devices release updates. Don’t worry, most companies will prompt you when an update is available. It’s a good habit to check periodically for these updates or better yet, enable automatic updates.
