Having problems with the browsing times and time limits on F Secure
On Windows 8 browsing times working, length or time not
On my windows 7 both not working
I have F Secure on 3 of my computers. 2 are Windows 8 and one is Windows 7.
On the Windows 8 laptops the browsing time limits (0-7) are not working, but how long the user can browse is not
On the Windows 7 computer neither the bfrowsing times, or how long are not working.
EDIT: Moved from feature request board
Hello, Probably your question more related with "trouble" or "support-request", but your topic created under feature-request. Anyway - with my systems.. probably looks like all OK around this features. How it certainly visible.. that it's not work on current time with you machines? Here I mean - feature with "ON"-status and all here configured, but access under supported browsers without changes around network? Maybe here able to try create some steps for understand - why it's happened. Or create support-request ticket under Support-page-steps. Sorry for reply.
Current features should be work with any accounts. But... just:
- Adminstrators able to configure settings for this under Browsing Protection;
- Adminstrators able to re-change settings during "session" after prompt - that time-use over-the-limit already .
Also maybe here able to use something with "Re-install plugins", but I not sure.. that it's can be related.
And not sure... how certainly to get information that something wrong here (such as - if here goes to "zero"-point about "lenght" - should be work... but with next try. All other limits.. will be under "real"-time use). If I all understand good.
But maybe previous words was about situation, when Windows already with configuration about time-limits under default Parental controls features (?!). Maybe it's can be (?!).
Thanks for your reply, have tested out the feature as both admin and limited or standard user.
As admin it worked in regards to browsing times, but not in regards to duration of time I Windows 8
But neither works on Windows 7

Sorry, just to clarify, are you saying it's not working when signed in as Admin, or as limited user? You may need to set up a limited account for it to work.
Just looking at my own machine, it seems I can set up a Standard user account with Parental Controls within Windows settings, and that can include time limits. That's on Windows 7.
So, that leaves me slightly confused as to what use F-Secure's Parental Controls are at all.
What version of F-Secure are you running on your pc's?
And what webbrowsers and versions have you been testing in?
I have just updated to the latest version of F Secure. Still having the problem with length of time you can spend on the internet - on Windows 8
Window 7 - the latest version on F Secure - neither browsing times, and length of time you can spend on line .. not working
I am using Google Chrome and Internet explorer,
Chrome the latest version
Internet Explorer 11
In this case could you please send support request with fsdiag so we can see what causes the issue.
It might be some conflicting software on your computer or some setting needs to be changes so in this case it's best to get fsdiag.
