Freedome on Mac crashing after waking up from sleep (Wifi captive portal)

Gryzo Posts: 5 New Member

Dear all,


I have this situation in which Freedome on a Mac (latest version of Freedome and Mac OS) crashes when the system comes back from a sleep and has Wifi with a captive portal.

Does this ring a bell with someone ?


What happens

- Come into this place where internet is via Wifi with a captive portal 

- Mac connects to this Wifi network, captive portal opens, provide username / password.

- Start Freedome, work along nicely

- (when the MacBook is idle, it goes to sleep)

- (somehow Freedome and the network stack get confused. Still connected to the Wifi but no internet connectivity, sometimes the only way to revive network is switching Wifi-off and backon)

- wake MacBook, see that Freedome has crashed.


I can provide a file

    Hi Gryzo,


    Welcome to F-Secure Community!


    Does it keep connecting and show any error message? Is it happening recently after any changes?


    Thank you

     I get an error page from Freedome "Error, Something went wrong, we are sorry." and I can only click "Cancel" or "Send error report"


    Clicking "Cancel", allows me to then to reconnect Freedome.

    Does this help ?
