Chrome 101.0.4951.41 fixes a number of security flaws, so be sure to update your browser to the most recent version.

Chrome and Chromium, the open-source codebase used by the likes of Microsoft Edge, Brave, and Opera, have been updated to fix 30 security problems. In order to ensure that the majority of users have received the update before revealing the vulnerabilities, Google has not gone into great detail about what these problems are. A small number of these defects are classified as “High” risk, indicating that they must be addressed immediately.


If your browser hasn’t received the update, don’t worry; it’s still being pushed out. However, it’s always a good idea to double-check and give Chrome a little shove to see if it can pull in and instal the update.

Chrome’s main menu may be accessed by clicking on the three vertical dots in the upper right-hand corner of the browser. The Settings option, which is at the bottom of the list, may be found here. Click on it to proceed.

You may get this information by clicking on the “About Google Chrome” tab on the left-hand side of Settings. This will then cause Chrome to check to see whether you have the most recent version of the browser installed on your computer. Don’t worry if you aren’t, since Chrome will automatically download and instal the newest version for you.


Simply select the Chrome menu in the upper left corner of your screen, then click on About Google Chrome and you’ll be led right to the page that checks for updates. On Mac, it’s even simpler.

After that, all you have to do to apply the update is reopen Chrome, which will ask you. Google Docs and other in-browser productivity applications will simply reload if you close tabs or shut them off. And the entire process is completed in a matter of seconds, as we observed when we asked Chrome to find the most recent update..

Updating to the most recent version of your software, operating system, and firmware, regardless of whether or not newly found security vulnerabilities are currently being exploited, is always a good idea. The majority of official full-release upgrades, with the exception of a few unstable patches, work to improve stability while also securing your software or device.
