Using NetUpdate

No matter how you launch NetUpdate, the program connects to Intego's server to determine whether you have the latest version of your Intego software installed. If a new version is available, you will be able to download and install it.

When NetUpdate connects to the Intego server, it displays a list of available updates. Applications whose names are not present are either not currently installed on your Mac or do not have any available updates. You will, however, always see products that require a subscription even if there is not an update available. This is so you can check how much time remains on your subscription.

Important: The only password used by NetUpdate is your macOS computer admin password. This is the same password you use to login to your computer and to install software.

 

Legacy Software: Checking For Updates With X6 Versions

Each of Intego's X6 programs contains a Check now… button in the NetUpdate status bar. You will see this bar at the top of the program's window; if it is not visible, choose View > Show NetUpdate Status Bar to display it. To check for updates, click the Check Now button as shown in the window below from Intego VirusBarrier X6:
