Samsung has started distributing this month’s security maintenance update for the Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 edge and Galaxy S6 edge+ in the Netherlands. The upgrade—G920FXXU5EQH6, G925FXXU5EQH6 and G928FXXS3CQH1—bundles patches for 50 vulnerabilities in the Android OS and 12 in the firm’s software.

Checking to see if the update is ready for your handset couldn’t be easier; open up Settings, select Software Update, then tap Download Updates Manually. Alternatively, you can always wait until you receive an alert prompting you to download and install the OTA; however, that could take a little longer to arrive.

There’s no telling how long it will take though, but you should find some peace in knowing that it’s on the way.
