Bring back the manual 'Game Mode' feature. Why do you keep REMOVING valuable features from F-Secure?
As of F-Secure Safe Version 18.1 (October 2021), you have REMOVED the very valuable ability for your customers to manually turn 'Game Mode' On or Off. Now the process is entirely "automated', with NO way for customer to start or stop Game Mode.
This is undesirable, non-sensical, and quite troublesome.
I've yet to see an antivirus or security product that can 100% of the time tell when I am running or not running a "game." F-Secure Safe also does NOT alway correctly determine when I am running a game (or so it appears as I monitor which processes and how muc memory is being used when I turn certain games off or on). It also seems to mis-recognize some full-screen programs as games.
There are also times when I am running work or other products that would greatly benefit, stability-wise, from manually turning on GAME mode (something we are not longer allowed to do!).
Please STOP removing vauable features and manual controls from your products. For example, several years ago you removed your own Firewall from F-Secure Safe, leaving only the very poor association with Windows' own Firewall, a far inferior solution that leaves security gaps. Many, many, many uses have requested you bring the firewall back, to no avail. Yes nearly all your competitors incluse a Firewall.
WHY do you keep removing valuable features? In my opinion, you are slowly crippling your own software and making it less useful, and probably losing long-time customers in the process. I hope you start listenting to your paying customers, and soon.
I don't necessarily mind having an 'automatic' Game Mode feature, as long as I ALSO have ability to manually turn this OFF or ON when necessary. Please return control to the user, and stop removing features without asking us!
Thank you. I, for one, am looking to leave F-Secure, as you continue to ignore us, and you don't ask for your opinions before removing NEEDED security features. Why don't you actually survey us users before removing specific features that are needed, since WEE are the people paying you? This seems a huge failure of management.
