Banking Protection

I am working abroad and have had to open a bank account for salary purposes. However banking protection does not activate when I bank online with this foreign bank account. Is there a way to get this bank added to F-Secure Safe banking protection?

    Hello,

     

    ->> Possible to use F-Secure SAS:
    https://www.f-secure.com/en/web/labs_global/submit-a-sample#sample-url

    -  choose ""I want to give more details about this sample and to be notified of the analysis results"";

    -  then URL type as "Banking Protection related troubles";

    -  then Problem type as "Banking session does not activate when entering site";

    - all other fields with related information;

     

    but it will take some days (three-four days maybe); and will work later too (by design);

     

    ->> Another potential workaround is:

    - launch browser;

    - open tab with any known banking websites for F-Secure (for example, nordea.no);

    Banking Protection flyer should be visible and triggered;

    - open your noted URL with another bank (if page is blocked by Banking Protection session - possible to allow it by "Allow"-button);

     

    It is workaround because -> when F-Secure Banking Protection session is active -> it works for all system network connections and browser's tabs (as example).

     

    Like another notes:

    -- good to re-check that your noted website is valid one and not a fake (?! for example) or modified by something.

    -- that it is work with HTTPS (requirements for Banking Protection);

    -- and is not used any proxies (which may be break the BP) -> at least, it possible to re-check that any of other banking/payment URLs still trigger protection session/flyer;

     

    // by the way -> my words was about Windows-platform.

    Other platforms may be with another design about certain points.

     

    Thanks!

  • Ukko,

    Thanks for your help regarding this issue. I have submitted a sample to the lab and await their response. I won't use the online bank till then as I like to have that extra layer of protection F-Secure provides.

    Thanks again, greatly appreciated.

    Cheers
