Set important apps and updates to install automatically to stay safe

Software updates are essential for keeping your devices and networks secure. They fix bugs and patch security vulnerabilities that cybercriminals can exploit.

Most apps on Android and iOS are set to update automatically by default. You can also schedule big installations, like OS updates, in advance. This is better and safer than having to apply updates manually.

Here are some tips for setting important apps and updates to install automatically:

  • Check your app settings to make sure that automatic updates are enabled.
  • Schedule OS updates to install at a time when you won’t need to use your device.
  • Use a third-party app updater to manage updates for all of your apps in one place.

By following these tips, you can help to keep your devices and networks secure by ensuring that important apps and updates are installed automatically.
