is it possible to install and use SAFE or Anti-Virus on the children's OFFLINE gaming PC?
i tried but found no possibility
Thank you for reaching out to F-Secure Community.
Unfortunately, an offline installer is not available for F-Secure SAFE. You may read the discussion below:
For older products such as F-secure Anti-Virus or F-Secure Internet Security, you can download the installer but during the setup, it will require an internet connection to download the necessary file needed from our cloud.
I am also only an F-Secure user. So, sorry for my reply.
It can also be added and noted to the answer above that the current F-Secure solutions rely quite heavily on their Security Cloud (thus network connectivity) for both more accurate malware detections and reduced false positive detections.
However, if you install it (using the network and installing all the necessary modules and databases at the time of the current day), then it will still be possible to use offline. Although I think that after some weeks - F-Secure solution will remind you that the product could be outdated.
On the other hand, having an offline PC - and the risks are much less.
