edited May 23 in F-Secure VPN

F-Secure version 19.6 (6.19.23) and MacOS Sonoma 14.5

Since I switched a week ago from Freedome VPN, f-secure does not correctly manage VPN. It worked at first. Now, it usually says "loading" for VPN. I have re-started, re-installed. I will not change security settings on my M2 studio.

as of today, every time I log in, it says updating. then it consumes one more license, and goes back to login. I release the licenses (same computer) and re-installed.

Now it never goes back to even loading, or seeing the VPN or allowing to change settings.

Unfortuately, this app is a complete mess compared to freedome VPN - which used to work instantly and all the time. I will need to change to a working VPN, this is too volatile.

I assume there is no reasonable fix (reading the other posts, you ask for endless logs, etc. at every new version release … maybe the issue is not with the community ?)

(unrelated, the same license seems to work fine on iOS/iPad OS ?)

    I've had the same problems (linked). Amazing that nobody has responded to you, either. They should have made sure that the new thing worked before kicking us off the one that did.

    I've switched to Proton for a comparable price. No problems so far.

    I can confirm all the problems and frustrations of the above comments on F-Secure VPN and totally agree with seejaMay 28, 202. Freedome VPN was working easily and without problems.. The Company now has forced on the users a totally inkompetent and malfunctioning V PN. It slows down everything on the laptop on 4 devices . I use MacOS Sonoma 14.5 and it it works 100% OK without the F-Secure VPN. Its' Annoying to be forced to pause the VPN to open most websites,of couse not acceptable when it comes to bank apps and other paying sites. No sign on the desk board icon whether the VPN is on or off.I've been using Freedome for years on multiple devices. Recently I was forced to "upgrade" to F-Secure.It's been rubbish. This VPN works OK on iOS/iOSiPad but is rubbish on MacOS. This I'm sure will go viral on social media with recommendations to change to another VPN and this will very likely affect the choice of other products from F-Secure. A serious Company can't replace a fully functioning VPN and at short notice with this crap. Tests should have been done before issuing.
