One of most important steps you can take to protect yourself online is keeping your browser updated. Browser updates protect you from identity theft, phishing attacks, viruses, trojans, spyware, adware and other forms of malware. Updates are issued periodically to address these problems. If you’ve not already done so, please enable the automatic update feature of your browser.
In most cases, there is no charge for browser updates. However, if you are using an older computer with an older operating system, it probably does not have the capacity to run current browsers. In that situation, we strongly recommend that you purchase a new computer in order to stay save online.
