    There was a minor issue with the new release which may result in new installations failing with network error. This will be remedied soon.

    Edit: This is now fixed.

    Hello,

    My fs protection after installing Oneclient SAFE 5.2.2285 - re-downloaded all updates/modules with a re-named view as "WithSecure"-alias instead of previous "F-Secure". Is it okay? Just compatibility-global support between all solutions/companies?

    Thanks!

    // I see, there is another server for checking updates already. So, seems that it is expected thing.

    Hi,

    that was quite perceptively spotted. Full downloads indeed were an artifact of switching to different update server and this is expected to be a one-time phenomenon.

    I'd just like to add a personal point of view, which is that the Tasks feels a little bit like I'm being nagged to do something. I get that it's hidden, but it's still there on the main interface.

    Obviously, for testing purposes, I accept it as part of the product, but if I were a consumer, I'd be asking for a way to disable them completely. 😊

    The point of tasks is that we want user to do something. Red tasks means that you are not protected. Yellow tasks means that you should do something important. Blue tasks are optional suggestions and they also do not force the UI to open. In your case, which tasks are bothering you?

    I think it was something to do with password protection, which I don't use anyway. I didn't realise there were different levels of tasks, as I've only seen the one. Obviously if it's something critical then yes, it's good to be reminded. 🙂

    Thank you for the clarification. We indeed recently added onboarding tasks for Password Vault and VPN. Both of these are blue tasks, so they are there in the UI if you open it for any other reason, but they will not force the UI to open. For beta users they may seem a bit unnecessary - after all, you did not pay for these features. For paid users, if they paid and got these features, they are there to remind them to also use what they paid for.

    You can always click on the task itself to get the bigger version of the task where there is option "Do not ask me again", which you can select and dismiss it for good.
