This year is starting off strong with a very important set of Patch Tuesday updates. The Patch Tuesday January 2020 updates bring the typical new features, bug fixes, and security patches.

For example, KB4534273 updates its support for Google Chrome‘s new cookie policies.

Google Chrome plans to modify the way cookies work, to the point of totally eliminating them in a maximum of two years.

Google announced that Chrome will soon protect users from cross-site cookies and fingerprinting. The company also plans to launch an open-source ads transparency browser extension.

This latest set of Patch Tuesday updates is set to support this decision. In fact, it is expected that future updates will also support this change in development from the tech giant.

For those that are already users of Windows 10, remember that Patch Tuesday updates are very important and that installing them on a regular basis is the key to staying safe.

You can install the latest Patch Tuesday updates using two methods:
