Five of the 41 problems are considered critical.

One of the critical flaws could lead a cyber criminal to take over your device completely.

This error is called CVE-2022-20210 and it could allow a cyber criminal to run executable code on your device.

Some of the other bugs could allow malware to sneak onto your Android without you noticing.

Google didn’t reveal much about the shortcomings.

It’s not common for security teams to fully explain bugs they patch, because they don’t want to encourage bad actors to exploit them before users update.

The good news is that none of the bugs are known to be actively exploited.

Updates should be available in the Settings section of your Android device.

It’s likely that you’ll get a notification asking you to update if you haven’t already.

If you’re using an older Android device that no longer receives security updates, you should still try to protect yourself from attackers.

Some third-party apps in the Google Play Store offer the latest Android patches.

It is also advisable to have additional security software on your device.
