Auto Patch is a feature added only for VIPRE Internet Security versions 2013 and higher. It checks for important patches to non-Microsoft applications installed on your computer. VIPRE scans for outdated software applications which can pose a significant threat to your computer's security. To prevent hackers and/or malicious software from exploiting these problems, software vendors fix security issues with their software by releasing incremental updates and patches. VIPRE Auto Patch fetches those updates and applies them automatically to your computer. This feature strengthens your computer security by applying the latest software patches before these missing patches are exploited by attackers and/or malicious software. By default, Auto Patch installs updates automatically.
