S Finder gets some critical updates on Galaxy S5 from Samsung

It looks like Samsung is pushing out a critical update to the Galaxy S5 that the company says is an "emergency update" related to the S Finder universal search app on the phone. The update could be downloaded over WiFi or over your carrier's network, though the latter will incur "additional data charges according to your data plan."

At this time, it's not known what is being patched, but the company says that "S Finder needs emergency updates for security and fundamental error correction," asking the user "will you update?"

We've seen the update hit our Galaxy S5 phones here at Android Central. Are you getting a push notification prompting you to update? Did the update process run smoothly for you? Let us know in the comments!

Hi I had a emergency update for s finder on Thursday 19th. & I updated it. Since then I have had no Internet on my mobile. It just disappeared. Got no mobile data whatsoever. Can anyone help me

Got it on my S5 through samsung apps on my way home from Boston tonight. It was a very small (like 3mg) update.

Nothing yet on Vz s5 but then again, I don't use any s-devices so I don't care for this update too much...

The panda has spoken

Was on my S5 when I woke up this morning. Took less than a minute over wifi.
