Hello! I was installing the newest F Secure SAFE update when windows defender turned off completely. Also when trying to turn it on again I got a pop-up saying something in the lines of "IT administrator has turned this feature". After the update finished installing I was able to turn it on again. Is this the tamper protection or am I witnessing a malware attack?

    Hi @Jontzu

    Welcome to our Community page. Thank you for your post.

    This is likely due to an update that temporarily turned off the protection.

    Open the SAFE application, if it says you are protected no action is required.

    Kindly let me know if you require further assistance.

    Thank you and stay safe.
