Why can't I use the password vault/ID protection as standalone app with a Total subscription?
(I previously posted this in News and Feedback, thinking it was feedback, but then realized it was the wrong place.)
I'm a long time user of ID Protection (and its predecessors). Often I've licensed the Total subscription, because it includes Freedome which I sometimes use, and Total is cheaper than getting Freedome and the Password Vault separately. I don't need or use any of the other included services.
Previously I've been able to install ID Protection separately, but now my only option is apparently to install the Total app. I discussed with F-Secure customer support today, who verified this. I find this very annoying.
Previously when I needed a password, I would hit the Win key and type "ID" + Enter, and the app would open, and similarly on a Mac with "Cmd+Space". Now I have to start the F-Secure app, and then find the Open button for Password Vault among six other buttons, and click on it. This is a lot slower, annoying and unnecessary. This is huge degradation in usability in my opinion. Why can't I have the option to run just Password Vault/ID protection that my subscription includes? Or alternatively, is it possible to make a shortcut or something that directly launches the Password Vault (even if it would leave my computer cluttered with apps I don't need/use)?
