Hmm I'm not sure. For me I saw it at the top middle of my screen. It's not a very big button, so it can be missed. I didn't notice it right away, so either I missed it at first glance, or it appeared after a min or 2 while being logged in. If you haven't seen it already, log in a give it a few mins and see if the "Join Beta" button appears.No such setting on my account. Probably because I have never downloaded / installed Sophos Home Free.
This is good news, I was about t
What do you mean by enhanced real time protection? Eg is it improvement of signatures is it better behavioral blocking, could you please share more details ?
Ya, it's very vague atm, so I am not sure 100% what they are referencing, but it could be more of the HMPA/Intercept X tech they added to this version. When going under the exploit settings, there are some new features that weren't there before, so I think that's what they are referencing, but I am not 100% sure.
On a side note, it does seem like they did add some self-defense to SHP. I briefly uninstalled it to test something and the first thing I noticed when the uninstaller was running was "disabling tamper protection", so I think they did in fact add a self-defense component to SHP.
