U.S. Samsung Galaxy S22 owners now have access to the August 2022 security update, while folks elsewhere in the world, specifically in Europe, have already gotten it.

Samsung's flagship mobile devices, the Galaxy S22, Galaxy S22+, and Galaxy S22 Ultra, have finally started receiving their August 2022 security updates.

The Samsung August 2022 security update started rolling out to its users in various parts of the globe two weeks ago or at the end of July, according to a recent Sam Mobile story.

Nevertheless, Samsung left out its Galaxy S22 US variant from the latest security update, leaving Western users patiently awaiting its release.

However, Samsung has already begun rolling out its August 2022 security patch, which includes numerous security fixes and privacy improvements.

A note should be made about the latest security firmware update for Galaxy S22 devices, which has the version number S90xU1UEU2AVG8.

Galaxy S22 Ultra and Galaxy S22 Plus unlocked versions and Galaxy S22 entry-level versions will all soon receive the latest security patch from Samsung, Android Central reports.

Samsung Galaxy S22 phones locked to a carrier, except for Verizon models, are not yet updated with the latest security patch.

Additionally, Verizon-locked Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S21 mobile devices will be receiving the August 2022 security patch, according to Android Central.

In addition to focusing on security, the latest update also brings tons of improvements to the stability and UI to make the overall experience more enjoyable.

According to Sam Mobile, its latest firmware update brings several privacy improvements to its users. Furthermore, it has fixed various security vulnerabilities, which may expose its users to cyberattacks.

Several issues are addressed in the update, including Samsung DeX and Know VPN issues. It also addresses vulnerabilities that could allow attackers to manipulate which apps have access to mobile data.

Additionally, it prevents MAC addresses of users from leaking and improper access controls from occurring.
