Is F-Secure SAFE able to keep security of my PC without "site blocking" of "Browsing Protection"?
Hello all. Thank you for your access here.
Now pelase tell me about this problem arround of Browsing Protection's rating by F-secure.
I am using F-secure SAFE, and it sounds nice solution for consumers like me to protect PC.
But I am feeling a fault. Browsing Protection feature is providing many false positive ratings at site blocking.
For example, when I was accessing some major websites of my country, some logs ware saved at event log viewer of F-secure SAFE.
These logs ware showing me that some URL was blocked F-secure because of dangerous website.
I was sending some reports to F-secure lab every time when I was blocked access to there, obviously there ware safe sites.
These reports ware responsed from F-secure Team by quickly, and it was very nice for many users. I want to tell them that thank you.
But, this working is very hard for a user as a consumer. If I can protect my PC correctly, I want to use F-secure SAFE without site blocker feature.
In some weeks ago, I sent a message to F-secure Support, and I was got a reply from them.
They wrote that;
"Borwsing Protection is providing a protection working as important for the user, but you can turn off it.
If you turn off it, proteciton layer for your PC is dicrease."
So I want to ask every one these things:
If the user turn off only "Browsing Protection" feature (without other feature), and continue to enable F-secure browser extention at each browser, the user will be protected correctly from threats comes by browsing?
Is "Browsing Protection" scanning access from application software except browsers (MS Edge, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and mroe...)?
Are major browser's security feature (e.g. Site blocker) providing a protection enough for the user, will be able to instead of F-secure's Browsing Protection?
What is F-secure's Support announcing a solution about the case like above things?
Windows 10 Home, Chrome and Firefox; the latest version.
F-secure SAFE adopted latest updates.
Browsing Protection is enabled, but not check at checkbox of "Block Suspicious Site" and "Block Probihided Site".
Please teach me your opinion, and would you help me?
I will welcome your post based on your experience around false positives.
Thank you very much!
