It’s important to keep your browser updated just as much as your security software. Browser updates often patch holes in the app’s security, preventing known exploits from being targeted by cybercriminals. These exploits can be used to steal your personal browsing information or even install a keylogger. In some cases, these holes in security can allow a bad actor to take control of your computer through your browser. In addition, browser updates can improve compatibility with older websites so they’re more secure and easier to view.
