Where is the call blocker?

After having reinstalled the f-secure app on my phone I can not find the call blocker app icon in the f-secure safe app. How can I make it apear again? I am using the app for android.


Thanks in advance for the help.

    Hello mpstab and Ukko,


    We now have a KB article regarding the feature changes in SAFE for Android and Mobile Security for Android here. Call Blocker feature has been removed completely, due to changes in Google's User Data and Permissions policies in October 2018. Please have a look at the article for more information.

    Sorry for my reply. I am only an F-Secure user (their home solutions).


    Sounds that "Call blocker" functionality is dropped with recent F-Secure SAFE builds. I am not sure about reasons or explanation (probably, 'drop'-status is published with some of updates); maybe current supported Android versions with own functionality to handle such feature(?!).

    For example, my Android 8.1.0 and preinstalled(Google?!) Phone application with options to configure 'deny'-numbers and some more.

    Otherwise - good to receive any official information!


  • Hi Ukko!


    Thanks for the information, I found the function on my android 8.1.

    But I this is bad information policy from f-secure. I have no problem that they drop funtions in the app if android has them but please inform the users about it!
