Researchers have found eight high-risk bugs that could be used by cybercriminals to steal your information and cash. We’re not sure what they want to do with all that personal data, but we’re guessing it’s not to send you a belated birthday card.
Luckily, Google has already released an update to fix these bugs, so you can breathe a little easier. But if you’re still living in the past with an old version of Chrome, it’s time to upgrade and join us in the present.
Here are the steps to ensure you’re protected:
Open up your Chrome browser.
Click on the three dots in the upper right-hand corner.
Click on “Settings” and then “About Chrome.”
If there’s an update available, it will prompt you to download and relaunch Chrome.
Sit back, relax, and enjoy the peace of mind that comes with knowing your data is safe.
In addition to updating Chrome, we highly encourage you to use a password manager instead of storing your passwords in Google. We promise, it’ll save you from the headache of trying to remember your cat’s name from five years ago as your password.
At Tech Troubleshooters, we offer a password management service that can help keep your passwords secure and easy to manage. Our service ensures that your passwords are encrypted and stored securely, so you don’t have to worry about them falling into the wrong hands.
As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us. We’re here to keep you safe from those sneaky cybercriminals.
Stay vigilant, stay safe, and stay awesome.
