    Release 18.0 beta 1 (build 38557)

    We are pleased to announce a new release of FS Protection for Mac. This update is now available for download from My FS Protection and delivery to existing installations starts today.

    New user interface

    FS Protection now has a new user interface. It has been completely redesigned with emphasis on clarity and ease of use. It supports dark mode. The user interface bundle also runs safely in an app sandbox. Windows FS Protection users will find it familiar as a similar design is used there as well.

    Mojave no longer supported

    This version cannot be installed on Mojave anymore because the new user interface (SwiftUI) is not supported there.

    Besides the above there are numerous bug fixes.

    Known Issues

    • Smart Task about full disk access does not consistently appear on Big Sur.
    • Subview banner title in dark mode is shown inverted.
    • New user interface is missing translations.

    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. For issues related to Browsing protection and Parental control, remember to include any URLs that reproduce the problem in your bug report. You may also submit false positives and uncategorized web pages directly to F-Secure Labs using https://www.f-secure.com/en/web/labs_global/submit-a-sample#sample-url

    As always, we welcome any feedback via the community pages, and reports of any issues found via https://beta.f-secure.com

    Will this run on Monterey perchance? Waiting to upgrade until I can ensure that my security software runs...

    Hello, @XenoPhage!

    According to our initial tests, the latest release of FS Protection indeed seems fine on macOS Monterey. No major concerns so far. We have verified the most crucial functionality on a M1 MacBook running Monterey. Though at the same time we are still assessing the full compatibility aspect.

    We would appreciate any feedback or any new findings on FS Protection running on macOS Monterey.

    Best regards, Arthur

    Mac R&D Team
