    My system was messed up and I had to restore a backup which was about a year old.

    In the backup I had FS TP old version Freedome and FS ID guardian . After I got up and running FS TP updated itself to the latest version 18.3. beta 5 without any hassle. So did Freedome.

    FS ID guardian, however, did not. I had to uninstall the old version and then reinstall the new version. (5.3 beta 1)


    Is that the way it is supposed to go and not automatically like the others?

    Hi martink

    FS ID guardian does nowadays have automatic upgrade the same way as FS TP. However, if you had a very old FS ID guardian version installed, the upgrade route may have gotten broken. Can you remember what was the version of your old FS ID guardian installation?

    Release 5.4.2626 (5.3 beta 3)

    (5.3 beta 2 was cancelled at testing phase due to a upgrade-related problem)

    Features:

    • App architecture has been rewritten so that quitting the app does not prevent browser extension to query credentials from user's vault, until user-defined autolock timeout locks the vault. However, if user locks the app, then also access from browser extension to vault is immediately locked.
    • Prevent product upgrade when app is open and unlocked.

    Improvements:

    • Dark mode support improved.
    • Dashlane import instructions improved.
    • Small UI improvements here and there.

    One additional note. There was an issue where if you had both fs protection and fs id guardian installed, the browser extension (autofill) stopped working after last fs protection beta. This issue is now fixed with this fs id guardian beta release and autofill should again work.
