First Samsung, then Google, now LG. LG is the next big Android device maker to commit to monthly Android security updates following the reveal of the Stagefright exploit. In a statement to Wired, LG explains that it’ll make security updates every month that the carriers will be able to push to users right away. LG’s statement:
“LG will be providing security updates on a monthly basis which carriers will then be able to make available to customers immediately. We believe these important steps will demonstrate to LG customers that security is our highest priority.”
We often trust smartphones a lot of personal data, and for a growing number of folks, these little pocket computers are the sole way that they connect to the world. That’s why it’s good to see more Android makers step up and pledge monthly security updates to help keep their customers’ devices safe. Here’s to hoping that we continue to see more companies do the same.
