Samsung’s August 2021 security update rollout is expanding even further. The Galaxy Tab Active 2 is getting the new security patch on AT&T and T-Mobile networks in the US. Samsung has already released the update to most of its high-end and mid-range smartphones and tablets.

The latest software update for the Galaxy Tab Active 2 bears firmware version T397UUESBCUG1. It includes the August 2021 security patch that fixes 40 bugs and vulnerabilities related to user privacy and data security. While we don’t have a changelog for the update yet, it might also include general bug fixes and device stability improvements. Don’t expect it to bring any new features or user-facing changes.

If you are a Galaxy Tab Active 2 user in the US, you might have received a notification of the new update already. If you haven’t received a notification, you can check for the update manually by navigating to Settings » Software update and tapping on Download and install. You can also download the latest firmware file from our firmware database and flash it manually.

Samsung had launched the Galaxy Tab Active 2 in late 2017 with Android 7.1.1. The rugged tablet received two major software updates: Android 8.0 Oreo and Android 9 Pie.
