Nougat for S6 active

I have been getting mixed answers from Samsung, AT&T, and the Samsung Experience Center on the S6 active Nougat update.  Can any AT&T forum worker please give me any details, just like the S7 Nougat update tracker.  I don't feel safe being on the January security update with hackers discovering more and more ways to hack Android.  I would please very much like an ETA on the update.  Thanks to anybody that helps.

Three weeks after the s6 is released is about right. The s7 active went that way. The infection rate on Android in 2016 if you used the play store was .05%ish. Android sandboxes all Google play apps. Now if your going to on the dark web then you need to be worried

@thegasman2121    There is no reason to be concerned about viruses.  What should be of concern is email and other accounts.  Email is easily hacked.  Secure with 2 step verification and change some passwords regularly.

Getting a 1219.10 MB OTA update on my S6 Active. I am assuming that it is Nougat but it is still downloading. Will edit this post when I know for sure.
