Software Update and Settings

To access options for doing SecureAPlus Software Updates, follow the steps below:

Automatic Update

By default, Automatic Update is turned on. Once it detects a new version, it will automatically update in the background without requiring any actions. You will be protected by the latest security updates.

However, for those whose machine is already experiencing heavy traffic load, the updates may sometimes slow down your system as there is an increase in the use of system resources. For this, we would recommend you to turn off the Automatic Update. This is recommended to users who also practice control over what is being downloaded and installed in their systems.
