Version 18.2 (4.70.1302)​

Released November 2021

Easier access to My F-Secure

This version of SAFE brings added functionality to the People & Devices view, allowing you to manage your licenses, devices, and people in your group directly through the People & Devices view instead of logging into My F-Secure with the browser.

ID Monitoring in the main view

You can now access the ID Monitoring page directly from the product's main view if you have an ID PROTECTION subscription. You no longer need to log into My F-Secure with the browser.

Tamper protection functionality added

Tamper protection is a new addition that prevents you or any software, such as harmful applications, from disabling protection processes and changing the product's content in the installation folder or the registry settings.

Other improvements
  • The product's main user interface now supports high contrast mode.
  • Banking protection's remote access blocking capability has been improved. "

This month, the emisi license will expire. I am thinking of renewing my emisi license or purchasing a F-Secure license.

F-Secure has become a bit of a heretic in Japan.
A few years ago, an employee of F-Secure's Japanese subsidiary did what it shouldn't do as a security software company. Since then, F-Secure's impression has been bad in Japan, and it's hard to find a place to buy it except on the official website.

F-secure would be a good pick, it's very lightweight and effective. Have used it the last 1.5 years as my main AV and it never failed me.

Slightly off topic but can someone tell me what virus signatures F-Secure uses ? I understand that they use a third-party, and they changed recently, I but cant see anything on their website about this. Where is this information published?

I've heard that you changed from Bitdefender to avira, but I'm not sure about the official comments.
I also feel that many vendors are reluctant to give too much of such information.

Thanks.
On the basis of that information, I found this on the F-Secure website which confirms the above.

The Beta version or? :unsure:
30 day trial. v 18.2.
If there is no problem with the software, I will purchase the license from the @SerialCart.:)

Only one thing is unclear at the moment. Because it does not recognize the portable version of FireFox, you cannot deploy web protection enhancements.
Like the UI, the account management screen is concise and very impressive. You can easily cancel a registered account or change your subscription.(y)

It won't recognize the MS store version of firefox either.
I had to install firefox via installation exe in order to get the browsing protection plugin.
Despite the above, and the occasional deepguard conflict with DRM of some Steam games, it is by far my favorite paid solution.
Lean, mean and simple.

Smart as @SerialCart has some very sweet and nice deals. (y)

Personal, I'm on Operas stable version almost 24/7 and that also can't fully use their extension as it's not a so called " supported browser ", not without first sideload it through another extension.
