Hi.
The last time I updated my phone, Lollipop was installed on it. 2 weeks later, because I was quite disgusted by it, I upgraded back to KitKat.
Then I disabled auto updates.
Now I wonder about security updates for the KitKat, are those still being rolled out? Is it possible to install them?
I'm afraid if I click "Update now", Lollipop will be installed again, but I really don't want that.

Thanks.

Android isn't quite like Windows where you'll get security updates after the version of the OS is installed. Security updates typically come as point releases (4.4.2 to 4.4.4 in the case of KitKat) and are only released by the device manufacturer (through the "Check for Updates menu in Settings). The only other updates that may happen would be part of the Google Play Services framework, which is updated in the background.
