18.5 beta 1 was not released.
Sorry for my ask.
Just about ""Allowed and denied websites import/export feature"" - whether any check regarding "correctness" and accuracy of import (as an example) is planned?
I mean, now if I will import .json (or whatever extension for that file will be) with 218673 entries (as example):
Perhaps, not a trouble at all. But this is also can be re-painted for a 'broken' entry (for example, one that cannot be created using the user interface). So, if you import a file with "some" broken (unforeseen) entries - then some of them will not be imported, and you are not informed about this. Remark: so, if five of seven URLs are normal - success prompt will be about "five" imported items. But the fact that there were two more is 'unknown' by that way.
Probably not a problem either. Unless the exported file format and the allowed/denied website design itself are ever changed for some sudden import inconsistencies.
Sorry again. And by the way, thanks for this feature. One of the ones I've always dreamed of.
Hello @Ukko and thanks for your feedback.
The size of import is actually limited by file size to 5 MB. As many entries that fit into that are processed but it will take a while as you noticed.
Since the export/import is meant to be used only for files created by our product, we don't mention any invalid entries since they should not exist.
As for duplicates, we were discussing whether we should show the number of entries after deduplication or before and ended up showing before, since that's what's actually in the file.
So, works as designed and we will keep monitoring the feedback.
Thought I'd best check in after receiving an 'Ancient Member' badge! 😄
As usual, the product has just updated seamlessly. I really can't find any issues to report.
Thanks for consistently reliable protection.
Can I ask about one point?
This is about children's profiles. You can (and should) choose an age group. Do they affect anything? Like when choosing \ creating some, will the default value of content blocking or time limits be selected (as a recommendation)? Or something more than that?
Also, Password Vault is (at least) not available for child profiles.
However, it is possible to choose a profile in the age category over 18. It would not be appropriate (or just possible) to add Password Vault functionality to such profiles (mm .. if someone decides to create them. and uses. Or as I do it, for my own use). At the very least, I think... that the need of a Password Vault for 18+ kids is quite possible and having Password Vault could be beneficial.
Child profile age group only affects the initial default settings. After that it does not mean anything, you can change settings as you wish.
Vault not being available for child profiles has a technical problem and we are working on it, but it requires some fundamental changes in how we store profile data, so it may take a while.
In case you have the latest, 4.2.69 version of Chrome or Edge browser extension (for Chrome it is available when writing this, for Edge not yet) then you may notice a new feature that allows you to report your suggestion for web page rating using a button of the extension. This feature does not yet work completely correctly, e.g. it has missing logos and icons. This will hopefully be fixed in a few days with a new NIF Web Plugin update.
18.5 is now live! Thanks for your feedback, more features will be available in fs protection 19.0, coming soon.
