    Hello @julienester

    Welcome to the F-Secure Community. Thank you for your post.

    Could you kindly provide us with more details about your inquiry? Specifically, when you mention "data backups in internet security," could you please clarify which part of the F-Secure application you are referring to?

    Additionally, it would be really helpful to know which F-Secure application you're using and the version number on your device.

    Your input is greatly appreciated, and we're here to assist you. Thank you.

    Thank you for your feedback. I apologize for the lack of specificity in my original question. To clarify, I’m interested in understanding the importance of persistent data backups in Internet security in a broader context, not in a specific F-Secure application.

    I currently do not use any F-Secure application, which is why I posted my question in this generic section of the forum. I am looking to get a better understanding of internet security practices and data protection principles, and thought this session would be a great place to start.

    Your prompt responses are greatly appreciated, and I look forward to learning more about protecting data in an online environment. Any insight or advice you can offer would be invaluable.

    Thank you for your help.
