Virtru for Outlook comes packaged in two different installer types - per-user and per-machine - which apply updates differently.
Not sure which type you have? It's always best to ask your administrator to make sure you're installing the right version.
Generally speaking, if you installed Virtru on your own, you're likely using the per-user version. If Virtru was installed by an IT administrator in your organization, there's a good chance you're using the per-machine version, in which case you should contact them for assistance in updating.
Users with the per-user version of Virtru for Outlook can manually check for updates at any time by selecting the Virtru menu in Outlook and clicking Options. On the General tab click Check for updates and follow the instructions.
Additionally, the per-user version of Virtru for Outlook is enabled for automatic updates. You can select the frequency with which you'd like to check for available updates in Virtru's Options menu:
- Select the Virtru menu in Outlook and click Options.
- On the General tab, select your desired update check frequency:
Virtru's per-machine builds are meant to be installed by an administrator for all users in a given environment, whether that be a single computer, a terminal server, or a group of users in a remote desktop environment.
For greater administrative control, the per-machine installer has automatic updates disabled, which you'll see reflected under Virtru > Options > General.
To update a per-machine build, contact your Virtru administrator. If you are the Virtru administrator, please contact your Virtru account representative or Virtru Support to obtain the correct installer.
