Browsing protection not working? (In addition to other problems)
I have been running the Mac version of Freedome on my MBP for about a year and a half and during this time, I have constantly had to turn protection off and on again to get net access after waking up the laptop. Well, F-Secure is working on this and we'll see if they manage to fix it.
However, lately I have noticed that this behavior seems to spread to situations where the laptop is already working. I lose the connection while according to the program icon the connection should be OK and data seems to flow again only after doing the off-on trick again.
Today I was checking the Freedome settings and ended up trying the AMTSO Phishing Testpage. And guess what the result was:
"Feature Settings Check – Phishing Page
If you can read this page, it indicates either:
- Your Anti-Malware solution is not (yet) supporting this Feature Settings Check
- Your Anti-Malware solution’s Anti-Phishing feature is not enabled or misconfigured."
So apparently even the browsing protection isn't working! As much as I like F-Secure as a company and would like to keep on using Freedome as an added layer of protection, I'm beginning to think that after my current subscription ends, I won't be renewing it. In addition to the problems above, my first disappointment was when Freedome could no longer evade the Netflix region restrictions after F-Secure so boldly announced that there's nothing that Netflix can do about it...
