Your FS Protection mobile app will be updated with a new look and useful features. Here's an overview of the latest changes.


What's new: People & devices view 

The new People tab lets you manage your protection conveniently in the app. Here are some things you can do in the People tab: 

Secure more devices 

Send an installation link to yourself to protect another device, or invite new people to improve their online security by sharing your licenses with them.  

Control your licenses

If a device is no longer using FS Protection, you can release its license to protect another device instead.

Manage Family Rules + VPN for children 

Tap the icon for your child's account to easily set and update healthy device and internet use limits remotely. You can also enable a free VPN that is now included in FS Protection for child profiles. This allows enhanced protection for children on any browser or app – even on public Wi-Fi. 


 Other changes in existing features 

  • Family Rules has been redesigned for children: Thanks to the new look, children can easily use FS Protection and understand their limits set together with the parent. Thus, using Family Rules in adults' profiles is no longer available. 
  • Finder support will be removed, as Find my iPhone/iPad is already attached to Apple ID for all iOS devices. Similarly, Android users have the possibility to use Google Find My Device with similar functionality. 
  • iOS: Ad blocker will be removed, as it has not been widely used. 
  • Android: Application privacy was originally introduced before it was possible to view and edit application permissions easily on any Android device. Now that this feature is no longer necessary, it will be removed. 

If you have automatic updates on, you don’t need to do anything: Your FS Protection mobile app will be updated automatically. You can also check out from these links:
