Downloading the latest software updates does not negate the need to be running the latest versions of antivirus, anti-spyware and firewall software. So why not have a look at your devices and install your software and app updates. You can also change your settings so that apps update automatically, as soon as a new version is available. The Risks Not keeping your software up to date can result in serious issues, affecting both your computer and your own personal security. Our recommendation is to download and install as soon as possible.
