F-Secure monitors Internet traffic even with web traffic scanning, browsing & banking protection off
F-Secure Internet Security and F-Secure Total (I tried both) still monitor Internet traffic even with web traffic scanning, browsing protection, and banking protection turned off and I never installed F-Secure's browser extension. Even with all of that turned off the "websites checked" counter on the "Secure Browsing & Banking" page still goes up. The only way I've found to disable Internet traffic monitoring is to completely turn off all protection, which defeats the whole point of getting F-Secure Internet Security. Is there any way to completely disable Internet traffic monitoring while still having the antivirus active? I'd love to use F-Secure but this is kind of a deal-breaker for me. Is it fixable somehow? Like maybe firewalling some .exe in F-Secure that is responsible for web traffic scanning so that it can't connect to the Internet? I also think it's misleading that you have an opt-out for web traffic scanning in the settings that doesn't work since the "websites checked" counter still goes up. At the very least that should be revised to either work as is claimed or not say that it can disable web traffic scanning.
