You don't need to check for security updates if you use a computer managed by the University of Otago. These are done on your behalf.

Your computer will usually perform self-checks for updates at the intervals specified by the manufacturer.

  • In some cases you will have the option to set this interval manually, or to disable checking for updates
  • You should always endeavour to keep your software current, but if the update notifications become annoying some software has a "let me update myself in the background without bothering you" option

If you need help with security updates, contact AskOtago:

Tel +64 3 479 7000 or 0800 80 80 98
