Google Chrome Security Update: November, 2019
Are you aware of the latest Google Chrome security update? Google has released the latest update following the discovery of vulnerabilities that could be used maliciously.
Luckily, Google was prompt at releasing updates for Chrome users. With articles coming out the updates will start rolling out “over the coming days/weeks,” our team has found that the update is currently available. We recommend a quick restart of Chrome as well as a double-check that you have the latest version: 78.0.3904.87.
Here’s how to do it:
1) Open Chrome and get to the “About Chrome” page.
Windows users can find this in the three bar line to the right of the address bar which will open a dropdown menu. Mac users can find it under Chrome in the menu bar.
2) Download the update.
Once on this page, you’ll either see that you are up-to-date with version 78.0.3904.87 or you’ll see a download of the latest Google Chrome security update start.
3) Restart the browser.
Close out of browser and reopen to apply the Google Chrome update.
4) Check to ensure it worked.
Navigate back to the “About Chrome” page to double-check that the latest Google Chrome security update 78.0.3904.87 was installed.
