Due to a recent security vulnerability on Android devices, all staff should be updating their devices with the most recent security patches.

To get the most recent updates, go to the settings menu on your device, the icon should look like a gear.

This may be different on devices from different manufacturers, some may have an option for Software update on the main settings page. Next choose to update your device and let the updates complete.
