F-Secure password autofill no longer available for Safari on macOS
My suite of F-Secure apps (SAFE, ID PROTECTION, FREEDOME) was recently update to F-Secure, which bundles them into one app. Unfortunately, there is apparently no F-Secure extension for Safari on macOS that allows me to use the autofill feature after this upgrade. Also, when I received the message about the upgrade, there was no warning that this would break the autofill feature for Safari, which was available for F-Secure ID PROTECTION. Not good.
I have no plans to change the browser because I have a large number of tab groups in Safari and it is easier to change the password manager than the browser.
When will F-Secure repair the password autofill functionality for Safari on macOS?
Welcome to the F-Secure Community page. Thank you for your post.

"Update" the Extension want to Install the OLD-App. that isn't working... :(
Installing the Extension like you described is working well, but the Extensions doesn't communicate with the new App.
Deinstalled every Component of F-Secure with Deinstaller-Tool, but reinstalling doesn't help.
Autofill-Externsion for Safari is not working.
The issue is that when clicking autofill in the new F-Secure app options to activate the browser extension for Chrome and Edge are shown, but not for Safari. In the previous ID PROTECTION app the option for the Safari extension was visible.
Not having the autofill option for Safari is a pain, because it now takes several clicks to copy and paste usernames and passwords from the app to the browser.
(I regret to tell you that I have already switched to another password manager that is properly integrated with Safari)
We regret any inconvenience caused. We would like to inform you that currently, the autofill feature in the F-Secure Total app is not supported in Safari.
As a workaround, we recommend that you use a different browser such as Google Chrome or Firefox if you wish to use this feature. You may visit this link on how to set up the autofill on Google Chrome or Firefox https://help.f-secure.com/product.html#home/total-mac/latest/en/task_1D051C0EB8D0421A9AF0A3920D67B401-latest-en. Alternatively, you can manually enter your login information into the F-Secure Total app if you prefer to use Safari.
Our team is aware of this limitation and is working to improve the compatibility of our app with different browsers. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we work towards providing the best possible experience for our users.

Could you please let me know which macOS version your device is running on? If you're not sure, no worries, I'd be happy to help you find out! Find out which macOS your Mac is using - Apple Support (MY)
Additionally, it's always a good idea to make sure your device is up-to-date with the latest macOS updates. Have you had a chance to check for any available updates recently?
If you're experiencing issues with an app, sometimes uninstalling and reinstalling can help. I recommend trying this step first. However, before doing so, I'd recommend exporting or syncing your password vault to another device as a backup. Here are some helpful links to guide you through that process:
Export password vault: https://help.f-secure.com/product.html#home/total-mac/latest/en/task_6630C28AADDF4746A3021E3FE0900730-latest-en

When you're ready to uninstall the app, we have a handy Uninstallation tool that can help. And before you reinstall, it's important to release the license from your F-Secure account so you can reuse it. Here's a guide to walk you through that process:
