Manually checking for web browser updates 

By enabling auto-update, your browser will check for updates every time you open it, so you can search for a new job with confidence.

You can also manually check for updates if you haven't closed all your browser windows for a while. Visit one of these support pages to find out how: 

 

Why update?

 

Better security

Your personal info might be at risk if you're using an out of date browser version.

Compatibility

A web page's compatibility determines how it looks in a browser. Chrome, for example, may translate a web page differently than Microsoft Edge. Indeed has been tested on all popular browsers to give you the most consistent experience.

Accessibility

Finally, we want Indeed to be inclusive and accessible, especially if you need tools like screen readers and magnifiers to help you make the most of your job search experience. Modern, up to date browsers give job seekers these tools.
