Does this only work with banking websites and should i see something when it's active?

I assumed that any transaction i made where i have to include my card number etc, that this would somehow show me something (similar to the way Kaspersky safe money works) but it doesn't. :unsure: I don't even think i've seen anything when i have visited my banks website either let alone a transaction page.

I'm pretty sure that for it to work, you need to install FS Browser plugin.

You would see pop-up flyer (on the top of the screen). It activates automatically once you go to your bank site. In case your bank is new or rare, perhaps you'd need to report it in so they can add it to banking sites list.

Yes, you see a green banner/flyer at the top of the browser window and it will automatically engage when accessing a website in F-secure cloud website database. Tested in Chrome, work fine. Does not support Edge (at least here).

And... yes... you need a plug-in installed.

It only activates when visiting banking websites and only if your bank's website is listed in F-Secure's database of trusted banking sites.

Hopefully this helps you with troubleshooting:

Dear Lord, if i had a brain i would be dangerous. i will try it out next time using a supported browser.

Nope, mine is only working intermittently. Chrome seems to be a big problem for me at the moment with everything. I reinstalled the plug in and Chrome but it still wouldn't kick in so I tried Firefox and IE and both are fine. I'll deal with it tomorrow, i'm going to bed :rolleyes:

I like it. It kicks all middle men out and ensures that nobody is snooping on your banking session. That being said just use a separate tab in Chrome and close the tab after you are finished. Make sure to change your banking passwords frequently and you'll be fine.
