Thinking about purchasing a new Apple M1 chipset laptop - but wish to know if f-secure products will be supported on the Apple BigSur ARM without Rosetta.
Hello, @flappybird !
Thanks for contacting us. I can comment this from SAFE for Mac perspective.
Our latest SAFE for Mac 17.9 release should be compatible with Apple Silicon Macs.
It's not a universal binary at the moment. So for the time being, it's running perfectly under Rosetta. But we have plans to start the process of transitioning to native support of Apple Silicon. I cannot share any estimates as it has not been yet scheduled but we are hoping to achieve that in the near future.
I will give the floor to the Freedome team to comment on their plans for Apple Silicon support. From what I've heard, they were definitely interested in providing native support and even were testing Freedome on Apple DTK unit. But probably they could elaborate more on their findings and plans to add the Apple Silicon support to Freedome.
Best regards, Arthur

F-Secure Freedome VPN installation should run smoothly due to Rosetta compatibility layer. However, we are still working on the aspect of Freedome login for F-Secure TOTAL but the fix will be released soon. Freedome with native ARM64 support will be released later.
We will be glad to provide you with more developments on this as we receive these updates.
