Similar to operating systems, developers of web browsers often find security flaws and vulnerabilities in their software. In order to fix these problems and keep users secure, they will issue updates for the browser software. For many web browsers this is done automatically, however if your web browser does not update automatically, it is important to ensure you are on the latest version of the software. If you do not keep your web browser up-to-date, it could leave your device vulnerable to hackers.
