trust_feature_security_patches_explain_e Security patches are released monthly by Google in cooperation with SoC vendors to address flaws which could be exploited by malicious apps to bypass security restrictions and cause permanent damage to your device. Patches made available by Google are applied every month on all supported devices, but patches to proprietary code can only be applied by your device's manufacturer. To keep your device safe make sure your /e/ OS build is always up-to-date, and (if applicable) ensure your vendor image is updated to the latest one recommended by /e/ OS.
