This may sound like a silly question so please bear with me. I update the databases automatically. But do I need to update the actual application ? (like do I need to download the latest version from website and install it periodically ?). There is also an option to download the latest version from my Kaspersky account. So do I need to actually update the actual application ?

It’s not a silly question!
Recently, Kaspersky released a new version, v21.2 & since then, a patch for the new version, patch(a).
Kaspersky have changed the version update & patch update process, all are now supposed to happen automatically.
Version & patch releases are done in staggered distribution, around the globe, the cycle generally takes a month.
A version & patch will arrive “silently”, if you do not reboot your computer in the 7 days after a version or patch has arrived, you’ll see a Recommendation/notification, advising a Computer reboot is required → image 1 & the Kaspersky icon will turn red → image 2.
It’s also possible to manually download the latest version from the Kaspersky global website.
- Is your software Kaspersky Free or Kaspersky Security Cloud Free?
