This month’s security update makes Internet Explorer more secure against exploits, but it needs to be installed to keep your browser up-to-date. The most recent, fully patched version of Internet Explorer is more secure than older versions.
For Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 users, upgrading to Internet Explorer 11 has significant security benefits — and enabling automatic updating ensures that users will always be up-to-date, writes Fred Pullen, senior product marketing manager, on the Exploring IE blog.
“This is important, because two-thirds of all desktop computers are still using older, less secure browsers despite years of security advancements and updates,” he writes. “We are making continued investments not only in making a more secure browser, but also in helping consumers and commercial customers get — and stay — current.”
