Many of us know that the Chrome browser has an automatic update feature, but in practice this feature doesn't always work as expected. Sometimes an update can happen only after a few weeks or even months, and all this time you will remain vulnerable to various cyber threats.
Today we'll tell you how you can check and update your Chrome browser manually, if an update is available, on your iOS and Android devices. You can check here what version of Chrome you have.
On your iPhone or iPad the automatic app updates feature is enabled by default in the Settings → iTunes & App Store → Automatic Downloads → App Updates. However, even with the auto-update feature turned on, your Chrome browser may not be updated for weeks. Here's how to do it manually:
1. On your iPhone, tap the App Store icon and tap Search in the bottom menu of the App Store.
2. In the search field, type Chrome and then tap the Search button.
3. In the search results you'll find the Google Chrome™ app. If you see the Update button to the right of the Google Chrome™ app name, just tap on it and you're done.
Your Android smartphone can also automatically install Chrome updates depending on your settings. But, as is the case with iOS, this mechanism doesn't always work. Therefore, if you want to update your Google Chrome™ web browser immediately to preserve your privacy and security on the Internet, you can do it manually as follows:
1. On your Android device, tap the Play Store icon to go directly to the Google Play Store.
2. In the search field at the top of the Google Play Store, type Chrome and then tap Search.
3. If an update is available, just tap the Update button next to the Chrome app.
Although mobile web browsing is becoming more common these days, browsing the web, working with docs, watching videos, and so on, with a large monitor and powerful computer are always more enjoyable, which is why we still use desktop PCs. So keep your Google Chrome™ web browser for Windows, macOS, and Linux always updated.
