    Hi @asok

    Could it be that the installation was not complete?

    When you see a pop-up appear, it will show the ID protection -> Application, so you need to Drag the ID protection icon to the Application folder. Then it should install permanently - if you have not already done this.

    Once F-Secure ID Protection has been fully installed and you can confirm that your Vault contains your updated passwords just as you had on F-Secure KEY, you may uninstall KEY or stop it from launching on startup.

    The simplest way to disable an app from launching on startup is from the Dock. Right-click on the app and hover over Options in the menu. Apps that are set to open automatically will have a check mark next to Open at Login. Click that option to uncheck it and disable it from opening.
