Opera performs regular checks to make sure you know about the latest, most secure version and includes an automatic update mechanism.
An auto-update dialog appears after a recommended update has been released. It includes information about the update and helps you to install it. If you want to automatically stay up to date, check the box marked “Automatically install updates without notification from now on”. This is the recommended option, allowing all future updates to occur silently, without any notifications; you do not need to do anything to stay constantly up to date.
If you want to check for updates manually, from the menu, select.
For more information about Opera’s auto-update function, see Opera Help — Auto-update.
New viruses and spyware appear all the time, so it is vital to keep your installed anti-virus and anti-spyware software updated regularly.
Ensure that you update other applications and plug-ins to ensure you have the most stable and secure versions. To check the plug-ins you currently have installed, type “opera:plugins” in the address field and press Enter.
