Most Antivirus solutions cope with a new version of Wavebox seamlessly. They're able to do this as we sign our binaries which provides them a way of securely checking the author and origin of the new release. Some Antivirus solutions can take a little bit of time to catch up with a new release. This can be as they push new security definitions out or wait for a number of users to install the newer version of the app.
If you find yourself with a message from your Antivirus about a new version of Wavebox there's a few things to do...
- Check you've downloaded Wavebox from a reputable source:
- If the app auto-updated it will check that it comes from Wavebox and is signed correctly
- If you've downloaded it yourself, ensure it's from https://wavebox.io/download
- Ensure you Antivirus and security definitions are up to date
- Ensure your Operating System is up to date to ensure you have all available security updates
