Stop worrying about your updates and free up time for other things. Heimdal Free updates your exposed applications automatically and eliminates vulnerabilities used in cyberattacks.
Free software updater for:
Windows 10, 8.1, 8, 7
32 & 64 Bit
Heimdal™ Free comes with a software manager that can monitor and auto-update your vulnerable software to the latest version, so you don’t have to do it manually.
Just check which applications you want to monitor or auto-update and that’s it. Heimdal™ Free scans for software updates every 2h and applies them the moment they’re available.
The update process is automatic and silent, which means you’ll never be interrupted from your work or entertainment sessions. This applies even on limited user accounts and you can check the installed updates in the “View History” tab anytime you want.
Outdated software includes many security holes that cybercriminals can exploit in their attacks. Vulnerable applications represent a high security risk and can expose you to cyber threats. According to US CERT, keeping your software updated blocks 85%* of web attack angles used by malicious hackers.
Heimdal™ Free keeps your browsers, utilities, and other apps up to date and prevents your software from getting infected with malware.

Heimdal™ Free will install updates fast and safely, saving you time and energy. You don’t have to download and run an installer to update your apps, it all happens automatically and silently in the background. No more manual software updates. Set it on auto-update and that’s it.
