If you own a Nexus device, you might be eligible for the March Android security update that is rolling out to select Nexus devices. Google has released the OTA (over-the-air) update and has announced it on the Android blog.

In case you are not aware, such monthly security updates from Google are really important if you don’t want your device at risk of malware, and eventually, hackers. The new update does not change the Android version, which remains at Android 6.0.1. However, the Nexus Android security update for March does bring some critical fixes for various serious issues.
