A security flaw in Google Chrome was under active attack last week; although Google’s most recent Chrome update (hopefully) automatically fixed the problem in your browser, it’s important that you double-check that you’re running the newest version (72.0.3626.121).

But don’t take our word for it. When it’s Chrome’s lead of security and desktop engineering suggesting that you update now — ”like right this minute” — you should take a few seconds to check your browser’s version.

To launch the Chrome’s built-in update tool, simply open the browser and select “About Google Chrome,” which you’ll find in the Help section within its primary drop-down menu. Your browser should then automatically update for you if there’s a more recent version to download.
