The vulnerabilities in Chrome 91 are found in the desktop and Android versions of the browsers. Chrome 91.0.4472.101 is rolling out right now on both platforms with the necessary fixes and you need to install it as soon as possible.
On the desktop, Chrome automatically downloads updates and tells you when a reboot is required. However, Chrome may not check for updates later in the day, so it’s a good idea to update right now.
To manually check for updates, click the three-point menu at the top right of the Chrome window and go to Help> About Google Chrome.
The Android version requires a little more effort to update. You will need to open the Google Play Store, tap your profile icon and go to the “My apps and games” section. From there, you will see an update for Chrome to install.
Alternatively, you can manually install the APK for the updated version of Chrome for Android. You can download it from here and follow these instructions. Go out and update for protection!
