I’ve often wondered which security program, if any, my fellow MT users’ ISP offers?
Is it included for free?
Do you use it?
Are you satisfied with it?
If you use it, is it a stripped down version?

Thanks in advance.

My ISP offers F Secure, I use it on an old laptop, but prefer to purchase it for the remaining 5 PCs. Just rewarding them for a quality product. And it is exactly the same as the OEM version.

Peace to all! ✌️

My ISP used to offer Norton, now they have “advanced security”. Basically web filtering and infected device monitoring. Probably not a bad combo with Windows Defender or built in Mac security, but I use a 3rd party router (which uses Trend Micro) so I don’t even get the benefit.

At one time, my ISP offered for a nominal monthly fee a "Safe Internet" service - F-Secure Safe but in a simplified version.
You couldn't configure it. So install it and enjoy the security.
I was once tempted to get such protection because it had banking protection.
But my adventure did not last long - until the expiration of the service.
Currently nothing is offered.
