Updating your plugins

Your online privacy is a matter of great concern to you as well as our team at AOL and the simplest way to keep your personal information private is to be smart about it.

Out of date plugins increase your risk of compromise by malware through malicious web sites. So, we want to make sure that you are safe and that all plugins are up-to-date.

To make sure your plugins are up-to-date:

1. Visit http://plugincheck.security.aol.com/

2. Review the plugin versions that are listed as both a Bad Version or Good Version.

 

3. Check to see what versions you have by clicking on your plugin icons, selecting Help from its toolbar menu and clicking About. This will show you what version you currently have.

 

You will then be presented with information about the product, including your current version.

 

4. If out-of-date, click on the appropriate icon from http://plugincheck.security.aol.com/ to download.

5. Follow the instructions to download your updated version.
