F-secure are an established, respected company.

However, how good is this particular product ? It seems to show mixed results in the tests I have seen.

I was thinking of using it on an Android device. Any comments about its effectiveness when used for that ?

F-Secure does well in AV-Comparatives, October 100% with some FP's, there is a couple of tests on YouTube by Leo & others where it does well. I think it's as good as anything & the interface is super simple. One thing some don't like is it using Windows Firewall, though Emsisoft has gone the same way & WFW is pretty good. Can be awkward to install as it does not like other security software, though that is probably a good thing - F-Secure bit of a dark horse I think.

AV - Comparatives (if this floats your boat?)

On my system as well, especially during the installation of the updates, then it normalizes.
New update (Avira signatures) in the beginning of 2019 should solve it. Really smooth database update installations and way lighter while doing it.

F-Secure's strength lies on its modules while they work as they should - by seeing the attack surface from scratch (as is the case with many other vendors). This way it is way stronger on blocking unknown programs (compared to MH tests).

However, blocking/detecting PUPs still lacks... I've always have had this feeling that ESET is leading in this category (y).

you have to use a new email, open a new account at f-secure, use a server from the UK in your VPN, to get f-secure. they are trying to get new customers.

i think there is a free giveaway for bitdefender on this forum.
