New Patches Available for Google Chrome Browser

October 21, 2020

Google has released Chrome version 86.0.4240.111 to apply security fixes, including a patch for an actively exploited zero-day vulnerability. 

We recommend that users patch immediately. Normally updates happen in the background, but if you haven't closed your browser in a while, you might see a pending update

To apply a pending update:

  • While in Chrome, at the top right, look at More (aka the three vertical dots).

  • If an update is pending, an icon of an “Up” arrow, will be visible and color coded

To apply a manual update:

Refer to the Google Chrome Update page for instructions for your device:
