GOOGLE is urging Chrome users to update immediately after it found seven high-severity vulnerabilities in its software.
All desktop versions of Google Chrome are said to be affected.
Google revealed the security flaws in a new blog post.
It's rolling out a fix for all them and urges you to update sooner rather than later.
The tech giant didn't go into too much detail about the issues.
Giving specifics away could accidentally help cybercriminals exploit the vulnerabilities before everyone has updated their browser.
Google said: "Access to bug details and links may be kept restricted until a majority of users are updated with a fix.
"We will also retain restrictions if the bug exists in a third party library that other projects similarly depend on, but haven’t yet fixed.”
Users need to make sure they update to the 92.0.4515.159 version of Google Chrome.
How to update Google Chrome
On your computer, open the Google Chrome browser and click the More icon (three vertical dots) in the top right.
Click Update Google Chrome, or if that option isn't there, it means you're already using the latest version or you can't update to a new version.
Once you've updated, click Relaunch.
The browser will save your open tabs and windows and re-open them when it restarts.
You can also restart your browser later on by clicking Not Now.
This will cause the update to be applied the next time you restart your browser.
The More icon will be coloured (1) green if an update has been available for two days, (2) orange if an update has been available for four days, or (3) red if an update has been available for seven days.
To check what version of Chrome you're using, click the three dots again and then click Help.
Next, Click "About Google Chrome" and a page will appear that says which version you are using.
