F-Secure having so many false positives is not a surprise for me, many times I have to disable its extension to browse perfectly safe websites, heck once F-Secure blocked a payment gateway. The only reason I am continuing with it is because I got free four year license here.
Their safe pay sometimes works, sometimes not, its kinda lotto. But you have to really visit shady websites 90% of time to have complaing about false positives. I have never seen current f-secure have a false positive and im watching over 10 family / friend devices and none of them had false positive or threat ever detected

I did not have many fp with F-Secure, but when my subscription ended, FS didn't show me any deals, seemed more like they wanted me to pay triple... :unsure: FS offered you a deal or some 3d party??
You can find 2 years of total security 10 devices for like 38 usd , dont buy from f-secure itself:oops:

Very nice success rate. It's what I'd install on my family member's PCs as well. Once installed, it's intuitive enough for them that you don't need all of the remote control Portal features of some of the other AVs.
