Security updates

JUMP TO SOLUTION

The last security patch I have is January 2019. I have an unlocked s9. Per Samsung tech support the delay is intentional and there is no planned date to release a patch.

I find this totally unacceptable given all the fraud and hacking going on.

Why should we bother buying galaxy phones when Samsung will not stand behind their phone.. all their phones.

I bought a brand new Tablet and never got a single update after buying it.  After 9 months my company's network wouldn't allow me to connect (I work in cyber security and can't hook to the network if device is over 6 months out of date on security updates).  I was STUCK since I couldn't do my work so I bought a brand new tablet again (Newest tablet at the time) and again never got a single security update and after 9 months couldn't connect at work again.  I was told it was on a quarterly update schedule because it was so new and when I told them I NEED newer security patch I was told that (I can't directly quote or my post will be removed for violating terms and conditions) security patches don't impact the functionality of the tablet at that they find the security updates to be "useless".

It's not just phones, I bought 2 tablets 10 months apart and neither one of them got a single security update, so even a SIM card wouldn't help either tablet as they were both WIFI only and had no SIM card.

I have the S9 SM-G960U1 on T-Mobile and was stuck on the January update. I tried a Verizon SIM from my work phone and it updated to June security with no issues.
