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 ITS by email on firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 64 3 479 8888 or 0800 479 888.
