If you own a Galaxy S9 then now is a good time to check your settings.
Samsung has just pushed out its September security update which includes a number of important security fixes with some so serious that they have been deemed critical.
These updates now come every month with this latest patch fixing numerous Google Android issues along with 17 Samsung Vulnerabilities and Exposures.
The firm says this update has been released to improve its customer’s confidence on security of Samsung Mobile devices.
According to the team at SamMobile, this firmware version G965FXXS6CSH5 is rolling out across Europe.
In a post on its security page, Samsung said: “At Samsung, we take security and privacy issues very seriously and we are doing our best to respond as quickly as possible.
“Securing your device and maintaining the trust you place in us is our top priority.
“Samsung releases monthly and quarterly security updates on selected Samsung devices.
“Monthly and quarterly security updates will include patches for Android OS related security issues released by Google, as well as, patches for Samsung-specific security issues.”
