A security flaw in Google Chrome was under active attack last week; although Google’s most recent Chrome update (hopefully) automatically fixed the problem in your browser, it’s important that you double-check that you’re running the newest version (72.0.3626.121).
But don’t take our word for it. When it’s Chrome’s lead of security and desktop engineering suggesting that you update now—”like right this minute”—you should take a few seconds to check your browser’s version.
To launch the Chrome’s built-in update tool, simply open the browser and select “About Google Chrome,” which you’ll find in the Help section within its primary drop-down menu. Your browser should then automatically update for you if there’s a more recent version to download.
