Updating a device

One of the easiest ways to stay safe online is to make sure your devices are up to date. Whether it be an iPhone, Windows PC or any internet connected device; ensuring the latest software updates are installed will help to keep you and your data safe.

And remember, it’s not just about the operating system. Applications often require updating and running out of date applications on your device can introduce a security risk.
