Update your Devices

Have you updated your devices lately? Security is a major part of why updates are issued for phones and computers. This week Mac has addressed a serious flaw in security. The fix for users is simple: update your device!

Mac users especially will want to install updates. Here's how:
For PC users running Windows, here is how to check for updates: How can I tell if my computer is up to date? Windows will either alert you about updates that need installed or report that "Windows is up to date":

Also, anyone using Windows XP will want to consider upgrading soon. In April 2014, Microsoft will no longer support Windows XP. What does it mean if my version of Windows is no longer supported? In general, your computer will not get updates, which means it will accumulate more and more security risks over time.

Updating an Android phone varies slightly, but here is the general how to update:
  • Go to Settings
    • Choose About Phone
      • Check for Updates
For more precise directions, search for the phone model online.
