Blackberry was the first company to try and tackle the mobile phone information security issue on a global scale. At the time they were pushing the issue, there was nothing more to back it than an overindulged conspiracy theory. When Mobile Internet was taking its baby steps very few individuals could see the how far it grow. The only need to protect your device was from the prying eyes of the government. 

 

As we said before, this is an idea that is being overindulged in Hollywood and other entertainment industries. Unless if you were involved in some Escobar kind of crime you had nothing to be afraid of. Because really who would be interested in wasting resources to see that you checking out child porn. The porn site would definitely be hunted down but not you.

 

Today the situation is different. Mobile Internet has literary taken over. Even in the most remote areas, there is now easy internet connectivity. Only the really outlandish areas are still without a proper reception. This is because of the amount of money that is being made online. The very same reason we now need to seriously consider mobile security. The money is causing ISP to go further in search of more users and also attracting scammers.

 

Policing the Phone

 

Without a doubt, there is now more potential of losing money online than ever before. However, rest assured, online casinos are 100% safe and secure. They do this by securing their websites with 128-bit SSL encryption. Visit https://www.casino-mate.com for safe online casino games. There is an unprecedented rise in cyber criminals. Not only in one area but in so many areas. Each and every day a new way is devised to take money away from even the most tech savvy individuals.

 

Therefore it has become essential to own a phone that at least knows more about cyber security. The phone should try to do more to stop intruders. One of the ways sure enough as Blackberry had predicted is data transfer encryption. This technology will even protect your transactions from prying eyes. It is the very same technology that is being used to protect player information at online casinos.

lollipop

 

Android Kitkat brought many storage problems and headache to the App developers, users complained about this many times and the only solution is to Root your phone to be able to transfer files from the Internal storage to the external storage (microSD cards). Google finally solved this problem with Lollipop.

 

microsd

 

Now with the release of the final version of Android 5.0 Lollipop, new APIs were added to allow apps to request full access to directories owned by other providers. These APIs have been improved to offer more capabilities than before, and they do it in a very user-friendly and secure way. You'll no longer have to Root your phone to access/modify your microSD data.

 

Here's what Google Developers said about lollipop shared storage devices:

 

Richer access to secondary shared storage devices
In KitKat we introduced APIs that let apps read/write file in app-specific directories on secondary storage devices, such as SD cards.
We heard loud and clear that developers wanted richer access beyond these directories, so in Lollipop we added the new ACTION_OPEN_DOCUMENT_TREE intent.
Apps can launch this intent to pick and return a directory from any supported DocumentProvider, including any of the shared storage supported by the device.
Apps can then create, update, and delete files and directories anywhere under the picked tree without any additional user interaction. Just like the other document intents, apps can persist this access across reboots.
This gives apps broad, powerful access to manage files while still involving the user in the initial selection process.
Users may choose to give your app access to a narrow directory like "My Vacation Photos," or they could pick the top-level of an entire SD card; the choice is theirs.

HTC brought the One A9 to the world a month ago today and the company's America president, Jason Mackenzie, assured that the phone would get new Android update 15 days after Google's update is pushed to the Nexus devices.


After a few weeks from release, HTC has confirmed that this won't be applicable to only the new numbered versions of Android. They say that they're actually committed to get monthly security patches, just like Google's recent November update, pushed to U.S. unlocked A9s "within 15 business days of Google's first push to Nexus". Although it is a few days more than 15 days, the update to the latest Marshmallow can be considered timely.


A spokesperson from HTC gave the following official statement:


"We expect the software update with Google's November security patches to receive TA (Technical Acceptance) later today and roll out to customers immediately thereafter".


So if you own a U.S. unlocked HTC One A9, soon you'll get an OTA notification. Unfortunately, other versions of the A9 along with carrier-branded and unlocked European models won't enjoy the 15-day update as they are deployed on a different software track.


By the way, as per a tweet from HTC's Mo Versi, tonight the November security update and the updates for camera and battery will be rolled out.

India is the first country to receive the latest security patches for the month of August on the Galaxy S6 Edge and other countries should follow soon. The 63MB download will change your current firmware version to G925IDVS3EPH2 and will a security vulnerability on the device, that Samsung has termed as "critical." If you are thinking that this patches up the QuadRooter vulnerability that we have been hearing so much about, you would be wrong. To the best of our knowledge, QuadRooter only affects Qualcomm Snapdragon chipsets and the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge is powered by the Exynos 7420 SoC. Even if there is a connection, it was not mentioned in the changelog.



There are of course other general improvements in performance and optimizations, and if you want to go into the details, just consult the changelog while installing the update or check the screenshot above. Hopefully, the regular S6 will also be getting the same update, but we are not sure if or when it is coming. In the meanwhile, be wary of shady apps and always check the permission list before allowing the software access to your device.

Samsung's security update for the month of April has now been released and is available for most major flagships to download as part of Samsung's monthly Security Maintenance Release or SMR. As is always the case, the package contains security patches from both Samsung and of course, Google. The SMR includes all 41 fixes from Google with the 35 CVE items as follows:


CVE-2016-1503(C), CVE-2014-6060(C), CVE-2016-0835(C), CVE-2016-0836(C), CVE-2016-0837(C), CVE-2016-0838(C), CVE-2016-0839(C), CVE-2016-0840(C), CVE-2016-0841(C), CVE-2016-0842(C), CVE-2016-0846(H), CVE-2016-0847(H), CVE-2016-0848(H), CVE-2016-0849(H), CVE-2016-0850(H), CVE-2016-2412(H), CVE-2016-2413(H), CVE-2016-2414(H), CVE-2016-2415(H), CVE-2016-2416(H), CVE-2016-2417(H), CVE-2016-2418(H), CVE-2016-2419(H), CVE-2016-2420(M), CVE-2016-2421(M), CVE-2016-2422(M), CVE-2016-2423(M), CVE-2016-2424(M), CVE-2016-2425(M), CVE-2016-2426(M), CVE-2016-2427(M), CVE-2016-1621(C), CVE-2016-0832(M), CVE-2016-0805(C), and CVE-2016-0806(C).


Index: (C) - Critical severity (H) - High severity (M) - Moderate severity and (L) - Low severity.


The main Samsung Vulnerabilities and Exposures (SVE) addressed in the SMR for April are as follows:


SVE-2016-5393: ACIPC-MSOCKET driver local privilege escalation Vulnerability (Critical)


The vulnerability allowed the attacker to cause a stack overflow and in the process, get privilege escalation. It has been fixed by correcting the code and by restricting access to the file itself. The critical vulnerability affected Marvell chipsets with JBP (4.2) and KK (4.4).


SVE-2016-5534: Non-existent Notification Listener App Vulnerability (High)


The threat affected the Galaxy S6 Edge by permitting all apps with a certain component name to get notified, irrespective of whether the actual application was installed or not. The issue is fixed by removing the component thoroughly from enabled notification listeners.


SVE-2016-5544: Clipboard Vulnerability (Medium)


Any device which was using Samsung clipboard was susceptible to the threat. It permits making of a race condition that allows access to the clipboard user data of Secure World, right from Normal World. It has been fixed through introduction of certain synchronization points which eliminate any chances of creating a race condition.


There are a few others, but they are undisclosed at the moment for security reasons.

The Galaxy J7 Prime had started to receive the security patch for the month of February just yesterday and today, the same update is rolling out to the J5 Prime. Both updates feature no major changes or improvements apart from filling in the security gaps in the base Android build.


The updates will bring build version G610FDDU1AQA2 for the Galaxy J7 Prime and G570MUBU1AQA3 for the Galaxy J5 Prime. Both packages will land on your devices via OTA within the next few days.


In other news, the next iterations of these two devices, aka the Galaxy J5 (2017) and the Galaxy J7 (2017) are speculated to be released this March with mid-range specs. If you are interested in the specs of the J7 (2017), check it out here. The J5 (2017) will also have similar specs as the J7 (2017), except for a weaker SD 617 chip and a smaller 5.2-inch 720p display.

It was only a few days ago that the Galaxy C7 Pro was launched in India and the device is already receiving the latest April security patch from Samsung in the region. This would be the first official update for the device from Samsung in India and it's a welcome one as it patches up the Android security gaps which pops up every month and subsequently needs to be patched in.


The SMALL package of 35.4 MB will reach all eligible smartphones in the region via OTA and the users whohave not been auto-notified to update their phones yet, should get the [prompt any time now. The build number of the firmware is MMB29M.C701FDDU1AQCA and doesn't seem to be bringing anything other than the SMR update to the Galaxy C7 Pro. We don't have any information about the Chinese variant receiving the same yet, but it is definitely a possibility.

It has now been about a week since Samsung first started to roll out the Android security updates for some of its smartphones and now it's time for the Galaxy Note 8 to receive the same OTA package. One would think that being the company's latest flagship handset, it would get the update sooner than the other handsets, but they would be wrong. Although some carriers (including T-Mobile) did already start to ship the update out to the Note 8 in the US, this one is rolling out in China (SM-N9508) and Hong Kong (SM-N9500).


Check out the following to get an idea of what's to expect with the OTA security package of the month.


·         Patches for 61 Common Vulnerabilities in the Android OS

·         Patches for 6 of Samsung's own UI vulnerabilities

·         Security patch against the Krack Attack Wi-Fi vulnerability


If you own a Galaxy Note 8 in China, you should be prompted to download and install firmware version N9508ZMU2BQK1 any time now. If you are in Hong Kong with your Note 8, firmware version N9500ZHU2BQK1 should be making rounds any minute now.

Security is always something to be concerned about when installing new software, updating software or connecting to the internet. Android devices have a reputation for problems with security, but the truth is that iPhones have also been hit with infected apps across over 30% of the iTunes app store at one time. The important point is to be aware of with security issues is to take reasonable precautions to protect your devices, your online accounts, and your data.


The majority of problems with Android apps stems from allowing installs from third party app stores rather than only installing apps from the Google Play store and nowhere else. This is achieved with a setting modification within Android settings which should be set to not allow third party stores when the phone or tablet is first supplied to the user. Once this setting is correctly set, it is impossible to install apps from other app stores.


Beyond that, apps like Avast and AVG offer virus scanning of data centres and installed apps to verify that the integrity of your device hasn't already been compromised. These security apps are usually able to scan new apps before, during or right after they're been installed to check they've not done anything malicious.

 

Let us know what you think in the comments section below.


JB

 

There have been recent concerns over the security issues in the rather outdated WebView mode in Android Jelly Bean (v4.1 - v4.2 - v4.3). Due to its outdated nature, it is facing security issues, which would otherwise be a non-issue on newer versions of Android.

 

Google has responded to these concerns by basically saying they won't be updating the WebView in Jelly Bean. But while that may not be what people have been expecting, Google does have a reasonable explanation for it.

 

jelly bean

 

Starting KitKat onwards, the WebView component, that is the browser that you see within apps that open links in their own built-in browser instead of sending you to your default browser, runs on the newer Chromium engine, which is the same as in the Google Chrome browser. However, Jelly Bean and older versions of Android use WebKit engine, which is pretty vast and being updated by hundreds of developers since it's open source. So, it is not easy or secure to update a part of that engine for Google.

 

Secondly, even if Google does release an update, it is entirely in the hands of the OEMs to deliver the update. For phones that are still running Jelly Bean when there have been two major updates of Android since, it's unlikely that OEMs are going to release any updates for them, meaning the security update may never reach the users.

dropbox

 

Dropbox has revamped its Pro plan with more storage, improved link sharing and remote wipe. The Dropbox Pro plan remains at $10 a month (or $100 per year) but you get 1TB of storage for that.

 

Having a Pro account lets you share password-protected links. Sharing links is arguably one of the best features of Dropbox and now you won't have to worry about the link getting in the wrong hands.

 

dropbox pro

 

You can get some extra peace of mind by setting up an expiration date for shared links. You can pick 7 days, 30 days or a custom period. You can also adjust the expiration date later if you change your mind.

 

Another way to share files without giving up too much control over them is by using view-only shared folders. You can enable this for select members so that they always get the latest version of your files but will not be able to change them.

iCloud

 

Apple is planning to add additional security measures to its iCloud service in the wake of the celebrity nude pictures leak, chief executive Tim Cook has said.

 

Apple has stated that its iCloud servers were not compromised, but it has indicated that some accounts may have not been adequately protected, such as, weak passwords and easy security questions. CEO Tim Cook further widened the blame blanket that some account holders might have fallen for a phishing scam.

The Company will alert users through email and push notifications when someone tries to change an account password, restore iCloud data to a new device, or when a device logs into an account for the first time, Mr Cook told the Wall Street Journal. The newly announced measures will go into effect over the next two weeks.

As always, Google has once again started to roll out OTA security updates for this month to its own brand of devices. In fact, the factory images and OTA zip files have also been made available for download since yesterday. You can always wait for the OTA update to arrive on your device, but if you are impatient and it has not arrived on your device yet, the factory images and the OTA zip files are there to be flashed, if you so wish. Carriers and OEM partners should also be in the process of preparing their own version of the October security update for their own respective devices, based on these files.


If you own a Nexus 6 or a Nexus 9 LTE, this security update will still be based on Android Marshmallow 6.0.1 instead of Android Nougat 7.0 unfortunately. It is unclear as to why Google isn't rolling out Nougat to the two aforementioned devices, in spite of them being eligible for the update, as per Google's own official declaration. Nevertheless, the update will bring all the necessary fixes and patches to all Google devices irrespective of the Android version that's running on the device.



We reported yesterday that the Galaxy S6 Edge + in Europe has started to receive the October patch and today we have even more good news for our readers in Europe as the S6 Edge has now also started to receive the same. The update will only be available on unlocked versions of the S6 Edge in Europe as you already know, so if you have a contract with a carrier, you will have to wait till a carrier specific version of the October patch arrives on your handset.


The update will fix 68 bugs/susceptibilities found on all Android 6.0.1 powered handsets, along with Samsung's own unique set of fixes for bugs exclusive to the range. The only thing we really know about the unique fixes which Samsung will bring with this update is the fact that it will solve an issue which causes the S6 Edge to hang at times while attempting to switch from one app to another. The rest of it is largely undisclosed in order to stop the hackers and cyber criminals from exploiting those gaps in security on the units that have not yet been updated.

The Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge have finally started to receive the monthly security updates from Samsung for September. The update had hit this year's flagships, the S7 and S7 Edge earlier in the month. As far as we know, the security patch is currently only available for the unlocked versions in Europe and comes in at a size of 141MB. As expected, it will bring in both the Android and Samsung security patches for the month, but its availability will depend on where you are located and you carrier.


Samsung themselves have included fixes for nine issues into the patch, in addition to the 66 fixes that Google has incorporated into the update for the base Android 6.0.1 OS running on the two smartphones. If you have not seen the notification prompting you to update your device yet, you should see it soon. Post the upgrade, your smartphone's Base Band version should change to XXU4DPIL (unlocked European versions). If you are using a carrier-locked device though, it will take a bit longer as it usually does.


Saikat Kar (tech-enthusiast)



If you are in Europe and you have an unlocked version of the Samsung Galaxy S7 or S7 Edge, you will be prompted to download a new OTA update soon, if you haven't been prompted already. Go to Settings > About device > Software update and search manually for the update to see if it has arrived on your smartphone yet. Even if it hasn't, don't worry, as it takes time for updates to reach all customers.


After you download and install firmware version XXU1BPHJ on to your device, it will become compatible with Samsung Cloud, which had so far been exclusive to the Galaxy Note 7 only. The new Gallery app from the phablet will also now become a part of your S7 or S7 Edge in addition to the SMR security patches for the month. While it is standard for Samsung to release monthly security patches for its flagship smartphones, the changelog for this particular patch was not detailed on their blog, like they usually are. Nevertheless, since it can only make your device more secure and brings some new features to the smartphone, we recommend downloading and installing it as soon as you can.



Just the last day, we heard about the September security updates from Samsung and Google are arriving on the S6 and S6 Edge and today we have similar good news for owners of the Galaxy A8. According to GSM Arena, A8 model number SM-A800F is now getting upgraded with the latest security patches by the September security update.


The 295MB patch includes fixes from Google against 66 bugs and security threats, along with a few of Samsung's own tweaks to further stabilize and secure the overlying TouchWiz UI. After downloading and installing the patch, your A8's Build Number should change to MMB29K.A800FXXU1BP12. Apart from bringing in multiple underlying improvements, the user should also be able to experience better voice calls, slightly improved battery life, efficient RAM management and an overall upgrade in terms of performance. If you have the same model as the one mentioned above, you should be prompted to update your Galaxy A8 soon, though it might take a while to arrive on each and every device.

If you own a Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus and were left a little disappointed that the S6 and S6 Edge got their September security updates while your device didn't, we have good news for you. The S6 Edge Plus international Exynos variant has started to receive its security update for the month of September, albeit on the last day of the month. The 160MB patch should arrive on your smartphone via OTA anytime now, if it hasn't already. Feel free to check for it from Settings > About phone > Software update anytime you wish. However, some devices will get it before others, but all eligible Edge+ smartphones should receive it sooner or slightly later.


Before you update, we feel that you should be warned about a few complains that we have seen on different sites and forums about the S6 Edge Plus' performance, post the upgrade. Some of the users are claiming that it has caused their device to heat up a lot more than usual and even interfere with basic phone functionalities like making calls. There are also others who claim that the update actually improved their battery life. Since it is not possible to discern what's the issue here as of now, it might be a good idea to do some research or have a back up before installing the patch.

Samsung has lately been pretty much bang on time with updates for their latest smartphones, but this time they have gone a step even further. Users of the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge smartphone in Spain have already started to receive their security updates for the month of June! Considering that it's still May, we think that's fantastic. Mind you though, as per reports, the update is only rolling out to the smartphones that are on Orange (a carrier in Spain) for the moment. Consult the screenshot above for more details.


In the recent past though, we did see Samsung do something similar when it rolled out this month's security update for the Galaxy Note 4 in April. If you are wondering if it includes any major bug fixes or adds anything new, we are at a loss here because not much else about the update is known yet. Nonetheless, it is only a matter of time before reports start to come in with more details. In fact, you will receive the update yourself before long, if you are using an S7 Edge that is. If you want, you can always check for the update from Settings> About Device> Check for updates.

If you own a Galaxy S6 Edge+ or a Note 5 on the Verizon network, you will soon receive a notification prompting you to update your smartphone. There is a good chance that you have already been notified, but even if you hadn't, you will be very soon. Alternatively, one can always check manually by going into Settings >About device > Check for updates.


The post Marshmallow update includes both security patches and general bug fixes, in addition to overall improvements. Notably, the misleading "No SIM card detected" error often encountered on the Note 5 will be fixed. You can also expect improved audio routing for better experience in call quality during both voice and video calls on the two smartphones.


In other news, Verizon's version of the LG G5 is simultaneously receiving an update via OTA as well. Unfortunately though, the monthly security patches have not been included in that update. It was mentioned in the change-log that the package will bring "enhancements for Visual Voice Mail, Airplane Mode and reporting Microsoft Exchange Active Server data usage." Hopefully, another update will be rolled out with the necessary security patches soon enough.

Samsung recently started rolling out the February's security update to all of the unlocked devices of the Galaxy S5, Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 edge, Galaxy S6 edge+, Galaxy Note 4 and Galaxy Note 5 present across Asia, Australia, Europe, North America and South America.


This update is exactly like the firmware that Google released for its Nexus series at the very beginning of February. It primarily resolves the 10 security loopholes and 7 major vulnerabilities present in the Android operating system. It also packs a dedicated patch for the buggy Qualcomm Wi-Fi drivers and a solution for a major error that could have facilitated remote access to the smartphone by sending a simple text message.


Sadly, the South Korean tech giant was not able to publish the complete change log for this update as there are issues present in the software which might not have been exploited by hackers till now. They might try to attempt to exploit those security issues before the patch reaches the devices. If you are using one of the devices listed above and interested in finding out whether the update is available for your particular unit or not, then jump into Settings, go to About Device and finally tap Check for Updates.

Ever since Stagefright came into public limelight in 2015, Samsung had taken up a policy to keep all its top-tier handsets updated with the latest security patches on a monthly basis. This was a step by the Korean smartphone manufacturer to ensure that this chink in Android's armor cannot affect its flagships. So far, Samsung has kept its promise and as a result, all the major smartphones under the company's banner usually get monthly security patches.


2015 is behind us now and the January, 2016 is coming to an end, but Samsung still makes good on its promise as January security patches for the S5, Note4, S6, S6 Active, S6 Edge, S6 Edge+ and Note 5 are now going live OTA. The update is designed to not only thwart present attacks by hackers, but also has elements programmed into the kernel to prevent attacks that have not yet been exposed.


In fact, the security update won't even have a fully disclosed changelog accompanying it as that would make it accessible to hackers, who can then use that data to penetrate the security system of Samsung smartphones. Nonetheless, Samsung has assured its users that this will fix prime susceptibilities that the aforementioned smartphones may have to remote code execution. Although this is good on Samsung's part, it leaves us with a question, what about the other, cheaper Samsung smartphones and their users?

If you live in Europe and you have a Galaxy A5 (2016), you should be notified about a new update anytime now. As you can probably guess already, this is the package that contains the Android SMR package for the month of October, as well as custom fixes from Samsung. The update isn't a particularly large one at just about 20MB, but this is an important patch nevertheless. According to the changelog accompanying the update, this will address a particular critical security hole in the A5's software. Details about this particular vulnerability were not mentioned in the changelog to stop hackers from exploiting it.



If you have not been prompted for the update yet, feel free to check from Settings > About phone > Software update manually. Even if you do not see the update right away, don't worry as it will take a while before all the batches are rolled out and it arrives on every eligible Samsung Galaxy A5 smartphone. As always, the update is only out for unlocked versions of the A5 (2016).

Reports from the UK have confirmed that Samsung just released the June security updates for the country, along with other improvements within the package. This is good news particularly for our readers in the UK because the S7 and the S7 Edge did not get the security updates for May last month.



The most prevalent issue with the camera was observed when you tried to playback a video recorded by the device's own camera. It would initially flicker, but note that it happened ONLY when trying to play a video recorded by the device. Fortunately, it has been addressed successfully. Along with multiple improvements in the camera application, a rare but existing S View cover recognition problem has also been solved. This one was a tricky problem which prevented the user from activating the phone's camera from the lockscreen, if the S View cover was on.



The update has also been noticed in various other regions around the world apart from the UK, but Europe is the only region to get a 329MB package, whereas the rest of the world received much of the same in a much shorter 73MB update. We are not really sure about the differences in between the two updates, but they look to bring in more or less the same improvements.

The older flagships from 2014 have just started to receive the January security update from Verizon. This list of the lucky handsets consists of the Galaxy Note 4, Galaxy Note Edge and the Galaxy S5. If you own a Galaxy S5 under Sprint, you will get the same January update as well from your carrier, but Sprint has not yet rolled it out for the Note 4 and the Note Edge yet.


The update comes in at roughly 30MB or less for all the three handsets and will address the 67 bugs and security issues just as all Android SMR updates for January do. However, this one will also fix 28 additional problems found only on the Samsung smartphones. You will find the firmware version numbers below, pertaining to the specific smartphone models.


Galaxy S5 (SM-G900V) - MMB29M.G900VVRS2DQA1
Galaxy Note 4 (SM-N910V) - MMB29M.N910VVRS2CQA1
Galaxy Note Edge (SM-N915V) - MMB29M.N915VVRS2CQA1

European versions of the Galaxy S6 Edge + smartphones are now receiving the October SMR patch, right on the heels of the S7 and S7 Edge. The update will address seven issues exclusive to the Samsung smartphones and about 68 vulnerabilities/bugs shared by all Android devices running on Marshmallow 6.0.1 (post the September SMR installation).


Feel free to check for the update from Settings > About phone > Software updates manually, but even if you don't, you should be prompted to upgrade your device when it becomes available to your phone. Connect to Wi-Fi in order to finish the download and installation process according to your own convenience. Once the update is downloaded and installed properly, your phone's Build Number should change to MMB29K.G928FXXU3BPJ3.


Unfortunately, the regular S6 and the S6 Edge is yet to receive the October patch and we are not quite sure when it will be made available for them. Nevertheless, it should be going live any day now.

Although it has been more than three years since the Galaxy S4 Mini was officially launched, it's good to see that it has not been totally forgotten. Those who are using the S4 Mini in Europe under a contract from Vodafone will soon be receiving a prompt to update their devices, if they haven't already. The update in question is the security patch for the month of September, which will address a total of 66 bugs and vulnerabilities on the Android 4.4.2 KitKat OS. The package has been released following a similar OTA update that was rolled out for the Galaxy S4 a few weeks back.


To check for the update manually, go to Settings > About device > Software update and see if it's there yet. Even if it isn't there, expect it to arrive within the next week or so. Once you download and install the security patch, the firmware version should change to XXUCPI1 on your device. Unfortunately, this isn't an OS upgrade, which means that the S4 Mini will still be running on the dated Android 4.4.2 KitKat as always. There has been no news regarding a similar update for the unlocked version of the Galaxy S4 Mini yet.

Just like plenty of other regions around the world, the Galaxy S7s in India have also started to receive their November security update since yesterday. If you own an S7 Edge however, you will have to wait a while longer. Like always, the security update includes Google’s monthly security patches for the Android OS in general (6.0.1 Marshmallow), as well as fixes for 14 vulnerabilities unique to the Samsung smartphones. Overall improvements in terms of stability and performance were also mentioned in the changelog, but nothing else was pointed out specifically.


Head over to Settings > About device > Software update on your S7 and search for the November patch manually. If it hasn’t arrived on your phone yet, just wait a while longer as OTA updates never reach all phones in an area at the same time. If it’s already there however, connect to your Wi-Fi, download the 64.42MB file and install it. The Build Number of your S7 should show G930FXXU1BPJJ after the update is complete.

Security update for the month of November has finally arrived for the Galaxy A3 (2016) in Europe. The update is only available to the unlocked versions of course, as carrier versions usually get their updates a little later than the unlocked ones. The package contains all the 60 improvements and bug fixes found in the Google Android Security Maintenance Release for the month of November. Additionally, there are also 14 unique patches and fixes from Samsung, catered specifically for their own handsets.


Other regions should also start receiving the security package via OTA soon, but the exact timeline isn't clear at the moment. If you are in Europe however, you should get an OTA prompt to update your device very soon, if you have not already. Just to make sure, go to Settings > About device > Software Update and search for it manually. When it does arrive on your A3 (2016), the firmware version will change to XXU2BPK2, post the download and installation process. OTA updates are rolled out in batches, so it might take a week or so for it to reach all devices within the eligible region.

A new update has been released in Netherlands for the Galaxy J7 (2016), which contains the security patches from Google and Samsung for the month of November. The OTA package is about 190MB in size and comes in with the prospect of fixing bugs and closing vulnerabilities on the J7 (2016), along with providing the usual improvements in performance and stability. Other European countries should also be receiving the update file promptly within the next few days.


When OTA updates come to a device, the phone usually prompts the user about it automatically. But you can also check for it manually from Settings > About device > Software update. Once your J7 (2016) is updated with the firmware, its build number should change to J710FXXU2APK2. Did you receive it already or are you still waiting for Samsung to release it in your region?


If you like your J7 (2016), you should be happy to know that a more improved version of the smartphone is coming in December in the form of the new Galaxy J7 (2017).

Even though it is already December, the two Samsung flagship smartphones from 2015 have just started to receive the November Security patch on T-Mobile. As expected, the OTA update brings all the security patches from Google and Samsung's own 14 fixes for the month. The phones should also become more stable and improve in performance as per the changelog.


Post the download and installation, the firmware version should change to G920TUVU5EPK5 on the Galaxy S6 and G925TUVU5EPK5 on the Galaxy S6 Edge. Of course, if you are not on contract with any carrier, you have probably already received you November security update from Samsung weeks ago. In fact, the December security update from Google is about to be released any time now. It usually takes a few days for the OEM to prepare the update for its specific models and incorporate them with some of their own custom fixes, before the carriers can have access to the ROM and further add their own customizations to it. This is basically the reason why there is usually a delay in-between.

We are almost a week into December, but Samsung has only just released the November security update for its flagship smartphone from 2014. The OTA file has so far been reported to be available in the Netherlands, Germany and Poland. This particular update concerns only the unlocked versions of the Galaxy S5 and not the carrier specific ones. Even though it's late, we are quite happy to see that Samsung has not abandoned the S5 completely.


The security update comes in with the same multiple fixes as is the part of all the other November Security Maintenance Release (SMR) from Google, as well as the 14 fixes from Samsung for the month. Even if it has not arrived in your region, don‘t worry as it will eventually reach all regions as always. In the meanwhile, Google has already released the final version of the Android OS 7.1.1 and the December SMR on the same date. Samsung on the other hand, is still testing out Android 7.0 on its flagships from this year (Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge) under the Galaxy Beta Program.

The year 2016 is coming to an end and Samsung has just detailed everything about the final patch of the year. Google had released the December SMR a few days ago, along with Android 7.1.1 Nougat for select devices and had given OEM companies access to the firmware. If you are wondering when your Samsung phone is going to get Nougat version 7.1.1, we have no clue, because Samsung is still far from releasing the final, stable version of Nougat 7.0 yet.


The December patch however, is definitely coming to all the recent smartphones from the company's arsenal, as well as a few of the old ones. Apart from the multiple fixes and performance improvements from Google itself, the patch will also address 15 issues that are unique to Samsung smartphones. Fortunately, it will solve a problem that I have personally been bogged down with. The mobile Wi-Fi hotspot would turn on automatically sometimes on my phone and the password would simply be presented in the log!



When exactly your smartphone will receive the December patch depends on your location, carrier and of course, the model that you are using. Nevertheless, it shouldn't be too long now.

The Galaxy Note 4 and the Galaxy Note Edge have started to receive security updates for the month of November just recently. If you are wondering why the two devices did not get the update earlier, the answer is that they are both old devices now and have therefore slipped way down the ladder of priority. Even though these phones were flagships from Samsung in 2014, the two year expiry date is already over.


The security patch is around 60 MB in size and alongside the Android SMR for November, it also brings improvements in domestic data roaming on the two smartphones. After you have downloaded and installed the small update on your device, the firmware version should change to N910TUVS2EPK2 on the Note 4 and to N915TUVS2DPK2 on the Note Edge. If you have any of the two handsets on T-Mobile, you should be prompted to update your device anytime now. Don't be confused by T-Mobile's official page where the last update rollout date for these two phones from the carrier is still being shown as October 24. It's just that they haven't updated that page yet.

The December security update for the Samsung Galaxy A5 (2016) is now rolling out to handsets all around Europe. Hopefully other regions should start getting them very soon as well. The OTA file comes in at a surprisingly slim package of only 10.63MB with firmware version XXS3BPLA. The small package makes us curious as to if there are any changes or fixes from Samsung at all in this one. We know that the file contains the SMR from Google for the month of December, but not too many of Samsung's own customized improvements apparently.



However, strangely enough, some users are reporting that their units have been prompted for a 169MB update in the same region. It is unclear at the moment as to what's going on here. What do you see? You can check right now by going to Settings > About phone > Software update. Let us know the size of the file that you are prompted to download in the comments. Just in case you don't see any updates for your phone yet, don't worry, as the batches tend to take a while before reaching all the smartphones in an area.

We have good news for our readers in the US as the Samsung Galaxy S Active has finally started to receive the December security update. One can argue that we are already nearing the end of the first week of January, but then again, these updates seldom reach the intended handsets in time. Also, carrier versions of a smartphone usually receive their updates a bit later than unlocked variants, as the file has to go through an additional layer of customization from the carrier.


The OTA file is landing on handsets with an AT&T connection only, which isn't surprising of course, given that the Galaxy S7 Active is exclusively available on AT&T. The 45MB firmware package has the build number MMB29M.G891AUCS2APL1 and brings with it everything that Android has fixed and patched in the month of December. That is it though; it isn't the Android Nougat update some of you might be waiting for. Then again, you cannot really expect the S7 Active to receive the latest from Android even when the regular S7 and S7 Edge haven't! Nevertheless, we did here about a Nougat based firmware update being released for a very few select S7 series of handsets yesterday.

If you own a Galaxy Note 4, we have good news for you. Samsung has now officially started to roll out the January security update for the older Note. Keep in mind that this update is only out for the unlocked variants and as of now, Germany is the first country to receive it. If Samsung follows its usual routes, then Netherlands will receive the security patch next. From there on, Poland and UK could be next in line.



The update will come in with the same 67 patches and fixes which are part of all Android January SMR updates. Additionally, 28 of Samsung's own custom fixes should also make their way onto your Galaxy Note 4, post the updating process. Check the details here on the official changelog. You should automatically be prompted to download and install it once it arrives on your phone, but feel free to check for the update manually from Settings > About device > Software updates, if you wish.

The security patch for January 2017 has started to roll out to the Galaxy J2 Prime and the Galaxy Grand Lite. While it's only natural for the J2 Prime to receive the update as it was only released last November, it is both surprising and good to see that Samsung still remembers the Grand Lite which was released almost three years ago in 2014. However, an upgrade to Lollipop is not officially on the cards for the Grand Lite as it continues to run on the ancient Android 4.4.4 KitKat OS.


The firmware version containing the update for the J2 Prime is G532GDXU1AQA4, while the one for the Grand Lite is I9060CUBS0AQA1. If you have an old Samsung smartphone that you want to upgrade but an official upgrade from Samsung is highly unlikely, head over to our firmware section and find the right custom ROM for your particular handset model. The only thing is that we recommend taking a look at our tutorial at least once before attempting to flash any ROM updates.

It was just yesterday that we reported about the Galaxy J2 Prime being updated by Samsung with the latest security patch for 2017 and now we already have news about the Galaxy J5 Prime receiving the same update. The J5 Prime was released near the end of the third quarter of 2016 and even though it is fairly new, chances of the mid-range handset being updated to Nougat isn't that great. However, Samsung has changed its strategy when it comes to delivering updates to its budget smartphones, so let's just hope that we are wrong about this.


You can check manually for the update if you wish, but you should get the prompt automatically when the January security update reaches your smartphone. The firmware version coming with this patch is G570FXXU1AQA2.


If you can't wait for the latest updates which may or may not be officially rolled out by Samsung, or you would simply like to try something else on your device, head over to our firmware section and check out the hundreds of firmware packages we have for you. Just make sure to go through the tutorial first and download the package that matches with your device's name and model number.

The January security patch has now officially started to roll out to the Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge, Galaxy S6 Edge+ and the Galaxy Note 5 on Verizon. One may argue that it's already February but it's better late than never. Surprisingly, it was the Galaxy S5, the Galaxy Note 4 and the Galaxy Note Edge which had received the SMR update a few days earlier than their newer counter parts. The firmware versions have been listed below respectively.


Galaxy S6 - G920VVRS4CQA3
Galaxy S6 Edge - G928VVRS3BQA1
Galaxy Edge+ - G925VVRS4CQA3
Galaxy Note 5 - N920VVRS3BQA1


Wait till you get a notification or search manually for the update from your settings menu, but it may take a few days before it reaches every device in the US, that's being carried by Verizon. The ROM files are not yet available for download, but you can always check out our firmware section for the latest updates that are available anytime you want.

After Verizon, now AT&T is rolling out the first Android security update of the year for the Galaxy S5 and the Galaxy Note Edge. The file for the Galaxy S5 is a 192MB patch with the firmware version G900AUCU4DQA1. Apart from the usual Android SMR security improvements, it also contains a number of Samsung's own bug fixes, which will improve your Galaxy S5's performance.


The Note Edge also started to receive the January patch on the same day but it is of a much smaller size than the one released for the S5. The 36.5MB file will have the firmware version N915AUCS2DPK3.


Unfortunately, this is probably the last update which the two devices are going to receive. Given that the S5 and the Note 4/Note Edge are both about three years old, that is to be expected. In fact, Samsung has supported its older devices surprisingly well lately, given that most OEMs stop updating their smartphones after two years from the date of release.

The Galaxy S4 and the Galaxy Tab 3 from Samsung may be old, but they have not yet been forgotten. While an OS upgrade to even Lollipop is not exactly on the cards (at least not officially that is) for the two aged devices, T-Mobile is currently rolling out the latest February security patch to them. It is always good to see carriers and OEMs remembering their old devices once in a while.


If you are still using any of the two legacy devices on T-Mobile, the OTA update should hit your phone or tablet any time now. Firmware version M919UVSFQA1 comes in for the Galaxy S4, while the Galaxy Tab 3 gets updated to T217TUVSBQA1.


In the meanwhile, if you have an old smartphone that you want to update but Samsung isn't really likely to roll one out for you anytime soon, head over to our firmware section for a wide list of custom ROM updates.

The February security patch has been reaching Samsung handsets pretty fast and the company has shipped them out to even some of the ancient ones, like the Galaxy S4 on T-Mobile. The Galaxy A8 and the Galaxy J5 (2016) has just started to receive the monthly patch as well. The firmware version released this month for the A8 and the J5 (2016) is A810FXXU1AQA2 and J510MNUBU2AQA5 respectively. The J5 Prime and the J7 Prime had already received the update a few days ago. As always, feel free to cheek from Settings > About device > System updates for the OTA file, if you haven't received a notification yet.


In the meanwhile, if you have a smartphone that had received its last official update ages ago, check out our firmware section for all firmware versions released for Samsung smartphones. You will find custom ROMs and official updates over there, but before you try to flash anything onto your phone manually, just go through our tutorial on how to use Odin3.

Samsung continues to support the Galaxy Note 4 with regular security updates as the February patch begins to hit the unlocked Galaxy Note 4 in Europe. Considering that even some of the its newer devices have not yet received the February patch from Samsung, it is a bit surprising. Nevertheless, it's good to see Samsung still supporting its older flagships.


The firmware version for this update is N910FXXS1DQB4 and it brings all the fixes included in the February SMR release along with a few of Samsung's own custom bug fixes and performance improvements. Although people keep saying that the Galaxy Note 4 is now too old to receive any updates from the OEM, Samsung keeps rolling them out and that's a good thing. Nevertheless, an official Nougat update is certainly not coming to the Note 4 or any of its contemporary handsets.



If you are in Europe, the update should hit your device within the next few weeks. If you are in any other region, you may have to wait a while before getting it. You can also head over to our firmware section to find all the latest available updates for your Samsung smartphones.

Although we are already into the second week of March, not all smartphones are fortunate enough to expect the March SMR package from OEMs and carriers yet. In fact, most older and budget devices have not even received the January security patch. If you own a Galaxy Note 4 or a Galaxy J5 Original though, you are in luck as T-mobile and Samsung respectively have released the January security patch for them.



The unlocked versions and even certain carrier variants of the Note 4 had started to receive the February patch a few days ago in Europe, so it is a bit disappointing to see T-Mobile taking so much time in rolling out even the dated updates in the US. Nevertheless, the 60.54MB package with build number MMB29M.N910TUVS2EQB1 should arrive via OTA on your Note 4 anytime now.



On the Galaxy J5 original, the January update arrives with the build number MMB29M.J500FNXXU1BQA3. This one comes straight from Samsung and not a carrier. Just as with all other January security updates from Samsung, this one will address 67 potential security issues common to all Android devices and 28 of Samsung's own custom fixes for vulnerabilities exclusive to Samsung smartphones.

The February security update has started to hit the Galaxy Tab S 8.4 just recently. As always, it's good to see Samsung supporting a device that's almost three years old. Although the device is probably never going to see Android Nougat (at least not officially anyway), the security update is proof that Samsung has not yet forgotten the tablet.


The firmware version of the update is T705CZCU1CQB3 and just in case you have not yet received it, check for it manually from Settings > About phone > Software update. Even if you don't see it right away, you will in a week or so for sure. In the meanwhile, head over to our firmware section to find all the latest available updates for your smartphones. We also have a daily update system on our site through which you are alerted about every update that springs up for manual flashing. In case you do not know how to use Odin3 and flash custom ROM updates, go through the tutorial here.

Security patch for the month of February has now started to reach the Galaxy A7 original. You may argue that it's already the middle of March, but hey! Better late than never. Besides, the Galaxy A7 original was released back in 2015 and it's a good thing that Samsung is still updating the device with regular patches. Then again, it has been the trend with Samsung recently to support even some of its older phones; a trend which we like very much.


The update comes in with the firmware version A700FXXU2BQB1 and should reach your region soon. In case you are wondering where this report originated from, know that the OTA file is currently being rolled out to the A7 handsets in the Netherlands. The report came to our attention, thanks to SamMobile and their sources.


If you have an older handset that you want to upgrade or if you want to flash the latest Nougat ROM on your Galaxy S7 or S6, head over to our firmware section and find all the latest available updates for your Samsung smartphones.

We are already in April and Samsung has only just started to roll out the March security update for the Galaxy C9 Pro. Still, it's better late than never! The OTA update has the firmware version C900FDDU1AQC32, which will bring in a few minor performance improvements along with the much awaited security patch for the last month from Google and Samsung.


As of now, the C9 Pro is only available in India, Vietnam, Hong Kong and China. The rather large 6-inch handset is the only one in Samsung's arsenal yet to sport 6GB of RAM. It also has an impressive 4,000mAh battery and a decent SD 653 chip. Unfortunately, it has not yet been upgraded to Nougat yet. The Nougat update is coming though, so stay tuned for more on that as we find out more.
