Banking protection keeps popping up unexpectedly




I've been lately (maybe already some months now) been experiencing with the following problem:

1. I log in to my bank and Banking Protection is enabled as expected.

2. I log out from my bank and I end the Banking Protection

3. I continue working normally

4. After a while, banking protection is automatically enabled even though I did nothing that I would expect to trigger the Banking Protection to be enabled.


Is there a log somewhere which I could investigate on what triggered the Banking Protection to be enabled?

    Sorry for my reply. I'm also only F-Secure user (their Home solutions);


    Probably... possible to find certain log with Banking Protection trigger's information, but I able to think that more good to contact direct F-Secure Support channels (chat/phone) for certified help and proper advices:

    Good to create fsdiag (and transfer it to Support);

    As my own potential suggestions:


    --> Good to know about "browser" and "Browsing Protection extension" (enabled/disabled)?

    Previously was troubles with Firefox and 'fresh tabs' (where can be listed 'previous opened' Banking websites; Firefox did connection to this 'tabs/shortcuts' /maybe for re-fresh picture-screenshot/ and Banking Protection session started. But this is only my own opinion; Some releases before it was noted as fixed trouble);


    --> If your experience about 'just' random time of this.. maybe trouble with 'active' process (?!) for previous opened tabs. Previously... Banking Protection was ON until 'process' closed/ended; But this is also was fixed (?!);


    --> Also maybe some of websites contain links to banking/payment websites and if 'F-Secure extension' is disabled (or with some situations -> enabled) - possible that this will trigger Banking Protection session;

    So -> if Banking Protection sessions started with opening certain website (good to re-check this website about background's resources as potential trigger);

    Hi masipila,


    After you close the banking session, do you still see the banner?


    Does the Banking Protection banner pop up only for a specific website which you browse or does it pop up for any website (after you close the Banking Protection banner)?


    I also found a KB article here which mentions what happens when Banking Protection does not turn off automatically on Bank logout. Do you happen to see this scenario?
