A festive tradition: Under-25s help out with technical issues at Christmas

81.5 percent of all 16-24 year olds help their friends and family with setting up or operating technical equipment at Christmas. This is the result of a representative survey from AVM. A total of 57.3 percent of all people in Germany say they give technical advice at Christmas. Customers with FRITZ! products at home can sit back and relax over the holiday period. With these three tips for the FRITZ! home network, everyone can be a tech expert this Christmas.

Carry out updates in the home network

FRITZ! devices get regular updates. Updating to the latest version of FRITZ!OS could be the answer to some of the issues or questions your relatives may have. It's therefore recommended to make sure all FRITZ! products up-to-date. This is easily done; all it takes is one click in the FRITZ!Box Mesh Overview. If the auto-update function is activated, the FRITZ!Box automatically takes over this job for all FRITZ! products in the home network.
