Does F-secure antivirus exclude browser security and banking protection? Is it only included with f-secure safe?
Are you still experiencing this issue? Depending on the browser that you are using, please note that our supported browsers are Chrome, the new Microsoft Edge with Chromium, Firefox & Internet Explorer.
This is written in your F-Secure SAFE / Internet Security program: "Google Chrome/ Explorer/ Firefox browser extension is not in use"
If your F-Secure SAFE security shows that the Browsing Extension is not activated, then do the following:
For the new Microsoft Edge with Chromium, once you update to the latest version of Edge, there would be an orange notification on the top right corner of the browser, click on it then enable the F-Secure Browsing Protection.
Once you have enabled these extensions, we recommend you do it on all the available browsers even if you seldom use them, then test if the Banking Protection works.
Let us know the outcome.
There is no option to enable browser extension in settings
I am only an F-Secure user (their home solutions).
Does F-secure antivirus exclude browser security and banking protection?
Yes, F‑Secure Anti‑Virus (www.f-secure.com/en/home/products/anti-virus) is not about Browsing Protection or Banking Protection functionality.
You could check brief features overview and comparison there: https://www.f-secure.com/en/home/products/compare
Is it only included with f-secure safe?
Not only. Slightly another design of Browsing Protection and identical(?) Banking Protection are also available with F-Secure Internet Security solution (www.f-secure.com/en/home/products/internet-security)
Then, yes, with F-Secure SAFE; kind of advanced view of management and Family Rules or Parental Control part of Browsing protection(www.f-secure.com/en/home/products/safe)
And with F-Secure TOTAL package / subscription (www.f-secure.com/en/home/products/total) - where F-Secure SAFE is one of parts (this package-subscription with two more software and options).
Based on your screenshot - your installation and subscription is for F‑Secure Anti‑Virus where Browsing Protection module is not available. Maybe you could try to reach their official Support channel (for example, web-chat) and to ask about an ability to upgrade your subscription to another solution OR maybe refund and further purchase for solution with Browsing Protection module (where Banking protection included too).
Oh ohk. Thank you very much.
