Adobe Acrobat and Reader can regularly check for important updates and install them for you. These updates can include important security fixes and product enhancements.
Updates are delivered using the following two options:
- Install updates automatically (recommended): Acrobat Reader and Acrobat regularly check for important updates, downloads them, and installs them automatically. When finished, you are alerted using a small message in the system tray that your software has been updated. This method is recommended since it does not require end-user intervention. It is the best way to keep Acrobat Reader and Acrobat up-to-date and more secure.
- Manually check for and install updates: Acrobat Reader and Acrobat don't check for updates. Instead, the user selects Check for Updates. This option is the least secure and only recommended in organizations that use other methods of deploying updates to their systems.
