The bad news is that a microchip security flaw called Meltdown had been determined to affect the Galaxy S7 cell phone used by approximately thirty million people. This flaw enables hackers to steal sensitive information such as passwords and banking information from unprotected phones. The good news, however is that Samsung, the maker of the Galaxy S7 cell phone released security patches in January along with more recent security patches in July that can protect you from this danger. The critical thing, as always, is to download the patches as soon as possible to protect yourself from being hacked.
If you have a Samsung Galaxy S7 and have not updated your phone with the latest security patches, you should do so as soon as possible. This is easy to do on your phone by merely launching the settings app from your Home screen or app drawer. Then Tap About Device which is at the bottom of the settings menu and then tap Download updates manually.
Tap About Device. It’s located at the very bottom of the the settings menu. Even better is to set up your phone to download any future security updates automatically by launching the settings app, tap About Device at the bottom of the screen and then tap the On/Off switch next to download updates automatically.
It is very important that you keep all of your electronic devices updated with the latest security patches as soon as they become available. Too many people have been victimized by viruses and malware for which security patches have already been released. Setting your devices for automatic updating is always a good choice.
