Is there a firewall with F-Secure Safe ? most reviews vs other internet security products indicate No but somewhere I have seen reference to F-Secure having firewall.
Sorry for my reply. I am only an F-Secure user (their home solutions).
The current F-Secure SAFE (for Windows) utilizes Windows Firewall. In general, it is possible to try use a third party firewall by user's choice (described there: Using personal firewalls | SAFE | Latest | F-Secure User Guides (f-secure.com) ), but is not recommended as such.
So, it is not about own F-Secure Firewall at the moment, but built-in system one. Also, there are some tweaks around for better result. For my opinion, Windows Firewall is quite enough for its basic (the most) value of firewall.
F-Secure SAFE (for Mac) - based on this reference ( What is a firewall | SAFE | Latest | F-Secure User Guides (f-secure.com) ) - also with Firewall. However, I am not sure about its design. In addition, the recent Mac solution with XFENCE technology (a kind of powerful thing).
Also, some general discussions about firewall subject were there:
And quite a lot of requests of "own" Firewall (with a bit unclear set of features / design) there: https://community.f-secure.com/en/categories/Idea_Exchange
Thank you for your response. I will check out if some additional protection is necessary for online banking which is my main concern.
