Kingston1 Posts: 23 F-Secure Employee
We are pleased to announce a new release of the FS Protection for Mac. This update is now available for download from My FS Protection, and delivery to existing installations starts today.
This is a feature complete release of Family Rules content blocking. We have also integrated an improved scanning engine. See this post for more information about Family Rules on Mac.
New features:
  • Improved scanning engine
  • Family Rules tab in main window
  • Family Rules upgrade and summary screens as part of subscription activation flow
  • Allow activating subscription without elevating privileges
Known issues:
  • Browser restart may be needed for Browsing protection and parental control features to work
  • Browser status may be displayed inaccurately if browsing protection is disabled, but family rules content blocking is enabled
  • SafeSearch is not automatically enabled for YouTube in Safari
  • Some strings may be unlocalized. These will be fixed in an upcoming beta release.
  • Time limits, while available in My FS Protection, are not supported in this release. 


If you experience any issues, please run the "Support Tool" in the Applications -> "fs protection" folder and submit a bug report with the file created to allow us to investigate the issue.
