Option to disable secure boot after update

Hey guys,
after my last software updates i have been asked to disable secure boot.

Can anyone explain why i should do it and what advantage out of this?
Or is it even possible that my computer won’t boot again properly after i disabled the secure boot?

i’ve been asked this three or four times now after an update but always skippedit.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Hi @PatRick08,

assuming you have an Windows PC with UEFI, you are better of disabling secure boot otherwise the message will most likely keep rearing its ugly head!. :smiley:

Thanks for your help.

You’re right i have an used windows laptop. i replaced windows with ubuntu.
Is there a possible danger that the computer won’t boot again after i did it?

Hi @PatRick08,

take a look here and have a read through it, it explains really all you need to know about UEFI systems!:


See the “SecureBoot” section in particular!.:smiley:

If you have any further questions, please post back. :smiley:

Thanks again for your help.
Ithunk i will disable secure boot if this option appears again after an update.
