Millions of Google fans get surprise free ‘secret’ upgrade – you’ll be thankful for it in 10 yrs for keepin… – The US Sun

GOOGLE has released a decade-long plan to provide more advanced security to its Chromebook users.

All Chromebook platforms are set to get regular automatic security updates for 10 years in a new update and it is completely free.

The 10 years of updates will help keep everything stored on a Chromebook extra secure

Chromebooks are laptops, detachable, and tablets powered by Google’s ChromeOS – they are said to be “speedy, smart, and secure.”

Google already was doing automatic updates every four weeks for Chromebooks.

The decade-long commitment is more than any other operating system offers and proves Google wants security to be a priority for users.

The 10 years of updates will help keep everything stored on a Chromebook extra secure.

“Security is our number one priority,” Google said in a release.

“We’re extending those automatic updates, so your Chromebook gets enhanced security, stability, and features for 10 years after the platform was released.”

All computers and devices need regular updates for security and software reasons.

If one goes too long without a security update there may be vulnerabilities that could allow a bad guy to get in.

If a bad guy gets into your device they could have access to your personal information.

Security updates keep everything up to date with patches for any recent vulnerabilities that have been discovered.

Google said that if you have Chromebooks that were released in 2021 and onwards, you’ll automatically get 10 years of updates.

Chromebook users that have been released before 2021 and are already in use will have the option to extend automatic updates to 10 years from the platform’s release.

All Chromebooks also will have Verified Boot for additional security – it is built-in security that does a self-check every time it starts up.
