Updating Freedome on Google TV device!


I have an Nvidia Shield TV and as we know, Freedome is not available on Play store for Google Android TVs.

So I have side-loaded Freedome to my Nvidia Shield and it "kind of" works OK. For example navigation does not fully work with the standard reomte control and a mini-keyboard has to be used if  the change of server/location is needed. But this is not a big deal and I rarely change servers.

My multiplatform Freedome license is valid for one device only.


Now to the questions:

1- In order to manually update the app (automatic update is not available), I have to download the latest apk from apkpure or a similar site. Now If I run the installation does the downloaded apk notice that I already have Freedome installed and  it updates it without me having to enter the license code again? Or do I lose the license info? And how does re-entrying the code work if I've used it once before on the same device?


2- Can the latest apk be downloded from the F-Secure internet site?


Thanks in advance!

    Hello @Mertsi1340


    F-Secure Freedome supports Android 5.0 and later. But since the Nvidia Shield TV uses Android TV operating system, which means it has a modified version of Android and some of its components that Freedome requires are not part of your installation, namely the android VPN. Freedome included only works with full Android. Please have a look of this KB article to know more about Multi-platform subscription.


    At the moment, we have no other official source to download the updated APK file for Freedome . All updated Freedome APK  can be found only through Google Play Store.
