► TECH ADVICE FROM DAVID DRING: CHROME UPDATE
Chrome is the browser (the app that allows one to see and hear information on the Internet) made by Google. Over the last few weeks there have been some vulnerabilities (areas that are open to hackers) and Google has responded to these with patches. Therefore, I highly encourage you to update your Chrome browser to the latest version: 92.0.4515.159. You can check your Chrome’s version by selecting the three dots menu in the upper right, then select settings, and finally about chrome at the bottom of the left navigation. These vulnerabilities do not affect Firefox, Safari, Edge or other browsers.
