Get Tails 3.6.2

  • To install, follow our installation instructions.

  • To upgrade, automatic upgrades are available from 3.6 and 3.6.1 to 3.6.2.

    If you cannot do an automatic upgrade or if you fail to start after an automatic upgrade, please try to do a manual upgrade.

    If you are doing a manual upgrade from Tails 3.2, 3.3, 3.4, or 3.5, it is only possible to select an ISO image when running Tails in English. For other languages, the file chooser button remains inactive:

    To do a manual upgrade from Tails 3.2, 3.3, 3.4, or 3.5, you can either:

    • Restart Tails in English.

    • Start Tails Installer in English from the command line:

      LANG=en_US tails-installer
  • Download Tails 3.6.2.
