March is on and the wait for the final security patch details is now over. Huawei has just released details of the March 2022 security patch for smartphones and tablets running the HarmonyOS software system.

Currently, the company is distributing the February 2022 HarmonyOS security update, but the rollout of this patch will begin soon. In the past 4 months, we notice that Huawei is more concerned about device security and rolling out security updates in time like Samsung and Google.

With the March 2022 security patch, Huawei fixes 2 high-level CVEs in the framework, 8 CVEs in the system, and 25 CVEs in third-party libraries encountered in the latest HarmonyOS software system.

The main purpose behind installing security updates is user data privacy and device security that is resistant to hackers entering the smartphone or tablet. Along with this, bug fixes help improve the performance of Huawei devices.

So, without extending our discussion, let’s move on to the details of the March 2022 security patch.

So here are the security vulnerabilities that have been fixed with the March 2022 security patch. Huawei sends out monthly security maintenance patches for its devices. We recommend that you grab it as soon as it arrives on your device.

Besides waiting for the OTA update notification, you can manually check for the latest update through phone settings. Open settings, tap system and updates followed by software updates.

From there tap on CHECK FOR UPDATES and let the phone connect to the server and get the software update. If an update is found, download and install it.

Current discussion among Huawei consumers:

Apart from all this, Huawei HarmonyOS users are waiting for HarmonyOS 3.0 and eager to know what it will bring them. At the moment, we don’t have information about HarmonyOS 3.0 features. But one thing is certain, the user experience will be improved. The HarmonyOS 3.0 beta is expected to kick off this month, followed by the stable release in July 2022.
