Security Option

It’s a clever trick software vendors and OS makers have played on us where we’re told we must always update immediately for “security” reasons, and then they use this false imperative to push destructive, user-harmful, malware-filled updates at us that disable needed functionality, pilfer ever more data, and generally regress interfaces to the 1980s.

All are guilty, but the worst offenders are Microsoft with Windows, Mozilla with Firefox, and Alphabet with Android.
